Give & Take is a simple set of tools and resources that will help you better engage your community around the things that matter most.
It starts with two simple questions: What do you know? What do you want to know? These questions are the catalyst for Give & Take, a gathering that engages participants through their own knowledge and curiosity.
We all know something. We all want to know something. Give & Take taps into the stories and interests of your community to inspire new connections and celebrate the creativity and curiosity all around us.
What We Need Is Here
Communities are more than the sum of their institutions and infrastructures — they’re the sum of their relationships. At Give & Take, people share practical know-how as well as big questions and aspirations. This open exchange sparks new ideas and relationships around the things that matter most to each of us, instilling a sense of belonging, pride, and civic imagination — all ingredients for more vibrant and resilient communities.
Inspire Your Community
Give & Take gatherings can happen anywhere, and each person who attends is an active participant, helping to shape the collective experience. The Give & Take Community Engagement Kit will help you create a Give & Take gathering in your community, or bring fresh engagement ideas to your next conference or gathering.
