Curious about this new hub of programs? Mayor-President Broome has launched a parish wide effort to make Baton Rouge Safe, Hopeful, and Healthy. She has called on several local nonprofits to work together, combine resources, and empower YOU to lead community development.
If you ever wondered how you can have an impactful fundraiser, bring resources to your community, host a community event, lead a beautification project, or make your neighborhood safer, this is the program for you. We are ripping the veil off the secrets of the best community organizers from around the country and sharing all you need to know to make this possible. No longer will you work endlessly alone to make a difference - You are powerful enough to be the change you want to see!
Absolutely anyone. The only qualification is that you are 16 or older and live in East Baton Rouge Parish. We believe everyone is a Community Leader as long as you have a passion, desire, or interest in wanting to see an impactful change in your community!
First fill out our interest form to stay connected with our upcoming events. We will be announcing the details of the Safe, Hopeful, Healthy Neighborhoods Initiative and how you can tap into all of the resources in this neighborhood engagement hub.
Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.
Love is not patronizing and charity isn't about pity, it is about love. Charity and love are the same -- with charity you give love, so don't just give money but reach out your hand instead.
