The Everett Office of Neighborhoods offers trainings to help neighborhoods, community members and interest-based groups build capacity, learn new skills and help one another succeed in engaging community members.
Next up in the training series is a two-part training on creating and sending digital newsletters. In part one (Oct. 29), learn the nuts and bolts of sending digital newsletters using the free online communications tool, MailChimp. Part two (Nov. 29) will teach you best practices for creating a great newsletter!
Everett's a great place to be and there are many ways to get connected with your neighborhood! Many neighborhoods have Facebook pages, communicate on NextDoor.com and have websites. Contact your neighborhood chairperson to find out how you can get connected!
Walk the dog, stop and chat, admire neighbors' gardens and landscapes, invite neighbors to a potluck, put on a chalk art contest for kids on your block, create a tool bank to share tools among neighbors, invite people to swap recipes or plants. Find common ground, start a conversation, get curious about who your neighbors are and learn about their interests.
