A rural community builder (RCB) is someone who cares about their community and takes action to make it better. Their community could be the whole city, a neighborhood, an interest or a park. Everyone is a community builder in their own way. And some go above and beyond, time after time.
• It’s the food bank volunteer working to keep the shelves stocked.
• And the community vision coordinator trying to create an inclusive vision where all voices are heard.
• And the business owner who you can count on to donate to community efforts.
• And the neighbor who always lends a hand.
In a kind moment, short-term projects or long-term goals, RCBs help bring people together to learn new skills, take community-led action and nurture a sense of community pride and grit.
