Get Involved Community Connectors


Community Connectors link neighbors to tools, guidance, and a network to improve themselves and their community

Bringing Neighbors Together

NKCDC’s Community Connectors program builds on the skills and interests of Kensington residents.

  • Sharing information
    Community Connectors work with their block to help NKCDC share important information and resources, promote community events, and take surveys. Connectors promote collective responsibility and community pride.
  • Block projects
    As neighborhood connections grow, Connectors work with their block to organize block projects, which can include planting trees, cleaning vacant lots, painting buildings, installing art, or even repairing homes.
  • Training
    Through project-based training on their blocks and skills training from NKCDC, Community Connectors develop skills and confidence to be even better leaders. Additional training is provided through the LISC Community Connectors Institute, NeighborWorks America Community Leadership Institute, and the Citizen’s Planning Institute.
  • Networking
    By bringing together leaders from different blocks for networking and social events, the community can share resources and work together toward shared goals.
