If you possess a diverse set of interests, have good communication skills, and enjoy problem-solving, you might be the perfect fit to be a member of one of our grassroots efforts. These individuals have a passion for making a difference and are committed to improving the lives of others. They are community leaders who enjoy collaborating, inspiring others, and teaching individuals new skills.

Change Agents

Change Agents are trusted community leaders who are already making a difference in their micro-communities. They bring people together in their neighborhoods to make the changes that their neighborhoods need. We provide training on asset building and community conversations to help them share their lived experiences and talk about the things happening in their communities.

Parent Ambassadors

Parent Ambassadors have a presence in and maintain an online community presence and liaise with BCC staff and parents about programs and initiatives. They perform an active role in the Early Childhood Coalition by encouraging other parent voices in the community to participate in the ECC and lead Parent Cafes/Parent Village meetings in their precincts.

Community Health Workers

Community Health Workers assist people to gain access to needed services and build individual, community, and system capacity. They help increase health knowledge and self-sufficiency through a range of activities such as outreach, patient navigation, and follow-up, community health education and information, informal counseling, social support, advocacy, and participation in clinical research.
