Theory of Change: If individuals assume leadership roles and/or engage in civic discourse within communities, then they will be better informed and take actions to benefit their community. This will result in cross-cultural communication and understanding of local, regional, and global cultures, perspectives and issues.
Program Goal: Increase public understanding and engagement in the processes and issues that affect our communities; develop current and future leaders to build better communities.
Boeing creates strong and thriving communities in King, Pierce, and Snohomish Counties. We strengthen social capital by supporting programs that engage people in deep, sustained levels of civic engagement, and reach out to diverse and underserved audiences.
Boeing invests in programs that:
- Inform and educate citizens about relevant and timely topics affecting the Puget Sound area and/or prompt them to action and service; and
- Advance regional adult leadership development to expand the pool of informed and effective leaders who are prepared to take action to resolve issues facing the region.
