But what does it take to engage new populations? How can your organization better connect to its community? What are the programs you need to build engaged audiences? I've more than a decade of experience answering these questions. I've run community development programs deep in the bush in Senegal, West Africa and volunteer programs in the suburban jungle of the San Francisco Bay Area. I help organizations identify their needs and then find the community partnerships they needed to meet those needs. Everywhere I've been, I have helped people connect with organizations and organizations connect with their environment.
