The Participation Project

Adopted by Community Resource Center in 2015, this established program equips nonprofits to effectively build inclusive, civic programs. The Participation Project partners with human service nonprofits to increase their capacity by providing guidance, training, and support to assist them in offering nonpartisan voter engagement efforts to their clients and community.

The Process

Engaging clients and community in elections is an important step in building the civic capacity of your nonprofit and community. Communities with higher rates of civic participation are more likely to volunteer, experience lower unemployment, and have better health outcomes.

CRC works directly with nonprofits to develop an action plan for their civic engagement efforts. CRC provides the necessary supports including training, materials, resources, and consistent communication to our partner organizations.

By providing civic engagement efforts to clients and community, nonprofit organizations may also increase their influence with elected officials and decision makers. This can help increase the overall effectiveness of advocacy efforts.
