Today, civic participation occurs at many levels. We make impactful decisions about our community every time we make a purchase, vote, post on social media and, of course, volunteer. We think any awareness we can bring to the many resources that might spur individual action for good, falls right in line with what we’re up to at HandsOn.

Living a Civic Life
Every person has the power to lead, lend support, and take action for causes they care about.

The Civic Circle helps individuals connect to opportunities and understand that doing good comes in many forms. It is a framework that represents your power to lead, lend support and take action for causes you care about and to lead a civic life.

HandsOn is hosting a 9 month, cohort-based discussion series on the Civic Circle and how to meaningfully apply it to our everyday lives. If you want to discuss the full spectrum of ways that you can sharpen your ability to drive change in your community and build a plan to create an impact for the issues that matter most to you — then this program is for you!

During monthly gatherings (via zoom), participants will learn about each element of the Civic Circle, reflect on their learnings, discuss how to take action locally and create individualized plans for civic action. Learn more and sign up here!
