THE ACTIVE CITIZEN
Building Community through Social Impact
The Active Citizen engages and educates young professionals on a range of social impact topics. Through our events, we build connections and community among socially-minded individuals.
We strive to create a community of Active Citizens. Active Citizens are more than volunteers – they are concerned with discovering the root causes of social issues and strive to identify solutions to complex societal problems. For Active Citizens, positively impacting the community is a priority, influencing their values and life choices.
WHAT WE DO
The Active Citizen offers 3 primary types of events:
The Active Citizen works with corporations to help employees engage with social issues an build meaningful connections with their colleagues.
At salon-style events, attendees gain exposure to multiple perspectives on a social impact topic, and also have opportunities to ask questions, discuss their own perspectives, and form connections.
DIRECT SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES
We work with organizations throughout New York City to provide strong, direct service opportunities. We believe that it’s important for young professionals to engage directly with communities in need in order to fosters community empowerment, connection, and effective service.
