That's the challenge of Give Back's Civic Engagement committee. Launched in 2006, this initiative offers more committed volunteer opportunities for Give Back members, ways for members to confront some of Greater Cincinnati's larger underlying issues and get involved in making a change.
Give Back Cincinnati (GBC) has traditionally focused on large one-day community service projects in which young professionals can simply show-up, everything is set and ready for them to make an immediate impact in the Cincinnati region. Civic engagement is different. It requires interested members to take a plunge into an issue, giving more of their time and talent, but hopefully reaping greater rewards. It's for those impassioned by children or business or diversity or crime prevention. Those who truly care about a topic and want to learn more and do more.
As always, we want to provide the best opportunities for our members. And we want to hear your ideas and feedback about our programs. Please contact our civic engagement coordinator to share ideas for future civic opportunities.
