NEK Community Builders




NEK Community Builders Program

Connecting the people who build strong, vibrant communities across the Kingdom.

Summary/Nuts & Bolts

The NEK Community Builders Program is a year-long collective learning program accessible to community builders of all kinds, whether you’re working, studying, volunteering or none of the above! Builders will gather every other month for facilitated collective learning. Between gatherings, Builders will conduct self-guided projects and research, engage and share learning with their own communities, and receive one-to-one coaching.

Community Builders will:

  • Learn and practice collaborative leadership and community engagement skills
  • Build deep, lasting connections with a diverse group of people across the NEK
  • Be compensated for their time and work
