GCBI Neighborhood Action
GBCI leaders advocate with Former Mayor Sydney Katz and Gaithersburg Elementary School staff for afterschool program Excel Beyond the Bell
The Neighborhood Action team works in partnership with Action In Montgomery (AIM), Gaithersburg non-profits, faith-based institutions, and leaders from nearby schools and housing complexes. The team engages in a wide range of activities, including listening sessions with parents, residents, teachers and attending County Council meetings. Volunteers, many with community organizing experience, commit several hours per month to working intergenerationally with our community partners, teachers and families, all of whom are dedicated to improving the lives of their community members.
Our volunteers played an important role in getting the County Council to include funds in their budget to rebuild South Lake ES. This team has been instrumental in supporting the tenant organization at Cider Mill Apartments called Safe Places/Lugares Seguros.
Neighborhood Action is the place for mature activists who still desire change in our neighborhoods, communities and the world. Bring your imagination, skills and passion to generate social change.
