Active Engagement Retreat

why join the active engagement retreat

Discover and reflect on your passions and purpose.

Learn how to recognize assets in your communities and learn how best to collaborate with community members to make an impact.

Explore the Community Engagement Pathways and identify the different types of service paths and how they work together to sustain services and programs.



You will participate in activities to help discover (or re-discover) your passions, your motivations, and your strengths when it comes to community engagement; as well as learn how to make a greater impact. We will explore the Community Engagement Pathways, and help you to identify which pathway you are drawn to (and what it means).

You will have the opportunity to interact with others in small and large group settings with dynamic facilitators to help teach and guide discussions. Through our panel discussion, you will meet professionals in their respective fields who are dedicated to making a positive impact in our state through different Community Engagement Pathways.
