 The Foundation’s Civic Engagement/Grassroots Leadership Development strategy is intended to support organizations of color and other
 community-based organizations committed to fostering the civic engagement and leadership development of low and moderate-income adults and
 youth in Boston and Chelsea. By focusing on issues of concern within their respective communities, these groups provide opportunities for
 participants to learn new skills, formulate possible solutions, make decisions and take collection action in securing changes that lead to social,
 economic and political equity and justice. The goals for this strategy are listed below. The organization should identify measurable activities and
 outcomes related to the specific goals for grassroots leadership development.

Required activities and outcomes are listed below. We welcome the inclusion of other activities and outcomes that the organization deems important
to track in their grassroots leadership development work.
