Resident Engagement Community Leadership Network (RECLN): Peer-Learning Institute 3

The Aspen Institute Community Strategies Group, in partnership with CFLeads, is convening a peer-learning network of eight community foundations focused on improving their understanding, capabilities and practice related to resident engagement around critical community issues. The action-learning network follows the completion of CFLeads Cultivating Community Engagement Panel, which resulted in a framework of resident engagement principles and approaches that community foundations can apply in their work on the ground. The network has met twice over the past year to delve more deeply into what resident engagement means for community foundations and to develop short-term action plans to advance resident engagement at their foundations back home. At the third and final RECLN peer-learning institute in May, community foundations within the network will:

  • Explore the ways in which community foundations balance their roles as charitable service organizations and transformational change agents (with a special emphasis on resident engagement)
  • Work together to determine the best ways to measure resident engagement and its impact
  • Advise one another on particular challenges experienced by each participating foundation team
