To: ____________________ From: __________________ Re: _____________________ This report includes my research on importance of community engagement and outreach as well as the community outreach programs carried out by various non-profit organizations working in USA to end poverty, joblessness, racial discrimination and much more. The report also throws light on the characteristic of credible social activists and how professionalism can be utilized to effectively raise the raise the voice of the neglected and under-privileged side of community. Many local and international organization are working today in the United States of America from both public and private sector. These organizations are run by reliable and professional activists to safeguard the rights of common people and fulfill their basic requirements. These organizations actively work by interacting with the members of their respective community and make them aware of the situations they are facing and teaching them how to combat these problems. As the United States has many ethnic groups residing in it, interracial conflict is a common thing but this conflict and especially unjust behavior with one particular community must not be tolerated and this is what all these civil right organizations are working for. Community engagement and outreach is a self-explanatory term that involves the interaction among the members of a community as well as the community’s interaction with public and private organizations and also with the government. By completing a thorough research on the agenda of many community service organizations all over the world and especially the ones working in the United States I have concluded that a society never becomes a civilized one unless all of the communities in it are equally facilitated with all the basic requirements and necessities including shelter, food and equality in front of law. Community engagement is a key to community development which becomes possible only when all the members of the society collectively give their useful input and struggle hard utilizing their potential capabilities to achieve a mutual milestone. In order to be a member of a developed society, the members of the society must have a decision making power and an ability of relationship development to get along with the process of development. Engagement and Outreach Community engagement is not a specific term and it can be used in many contexts. Different organizations, institutions and industries perceive this term differently. According to many organizations dealing with community services and progress, community engagement is to involve certain people into a big community so that they could get the services provided by such organizations. The success of a society can be measured with the number of people active in the volunteer work for the service of society and also from the number of people to which the public services are available ( Satherley, Dawes, 2009) .
