The goal is to develop strong social connections throughout the community. These social connections are developed when citizens do things together consistently over time. The projects are designed so that people can and want to work and play together and, in the process, develop relationships that connects the community together.
The spark that lights the fire is the Community Champion.
What can you expect?
As Community Champion, you will not be alone. We will help you develop a Core Group of citizens and together you will share the work, share the joy and share the accomplishment of transforming your community. We know people have other commitments. The program is designed to accommodate people with lots of passion and limited time.
Although the process works the same in every community, how the community uses it is always unique to each community. In this way, it always respects local culture and utilizes local resources.
And it always focuses on results that strengthen connectedness, belonging and caring.
In other communities:
- New people moved in (people like living in Happy Communities)
- New businesses opened up
- Divisiveness disappeared
- Volunteerism went way up (one community had 600 new volunteers show up)
- Community pride blossomed
- The community became a can-do community with confidence in its future.
Every community can afford to be a Happy Community.
