Join the Rural Community Building Movement
WHAT’S A RURAL COMMUNITY BUILDER?
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.
WHY DOES THIS MATTER?
This is a movement that CELEBRATES, INSPIRES and CONNECTS with people and local groups building their communities’ futures in an inclusive and comprehensive way. We see challenges as opportunities to spark positive change. You are invited to connect with fellow rural advocates to share stories, celebrate wins, reflect on challenges, ask questions, share knowledge, develop relationships, and expand and improve the pool of resources available to the rural communities of Oregon and Siskiyou County, Calif.
