Frameworks for Change


Aligning Action around Personal and Collective Goals

Be the Change
  • Actions speak louder than words.  

  • Organizations and individuals who live consistently with their professed values model integrity for others.

How does one achieve meaningful community outcomes?
How do you sustain energy and commitment?

Your Turn:

Individual Activity:

  • Where in your life is it most evident what you care about, where you have been able to influence others by your commitment? What are the areas in your life in which you feel your actions and values are best aligned?

  • How do communities go about establishing a sense of identity? What values would you most like to see reflected in your community? What can you do to work towards community actions consistent with these values?

  • What have you discovered brings hope alive and encourages commitment? What inspires you to take constructive risks as a community builder?
