VNB Community Counts: Charlottesville Civic Action 2010

May 21, 2010

Community Counts gives you a chance to learn more about the people and the organizations that have a positive impact on our community. This week we feature the Center for Nonprofit Excellence's Charlottesville Civic Action 2010 event.

Christine Nardi joined CBS19's Bo Sykes to talk more about the event, which engages 12 local nonprofits in a two-month civic engagement exhibit.

The exhibit answers the question: “What is the most promising opportunity to strengthen our community over the next decade and what action will your organization take to make a difference?”

From a pool of 48 applicants, 12 were competitively selected: Jefferson School African American Heritage Center, Jefferson Area Board on Aging (JABA), Public Housing Association of Residents (PHAR), Buford Schoolyard Garden, Local Energy Alliance Program (LEAP), Boys & Girls Club of Charlottesville/Albemarle, CACF Future Fund, Alliance for Community Choice in Transportation, WorkSource Enterprises, The Bridge Progressive Arts Initiative, Better World Betty and Creciendo Juntos.

The event was created as a partnership between the Charlottesville Community Design Center (CCDC) and Center for Nonprofit Excellence (CNE) to demonstrate how the nonprofit sector can serve as a catalyst for positive community change and to spark community dialogue about the healthy evolution of our community in the next decade.
