Strategic Focus Areas

Good Work's collaborative work cultivates and continues alliances to strengthen efforts for community self-reliance and resilience.  Good Work strives to help grow or strengthen collaborative and culturally appropriate leadership development, community-based and cooperative entrepreneurship, career and asset development, and mutual self-help projects.  

We support local collaboratives and coalitions focused on:

  • self-reliance skill development, business and cooperative development, and community-based leadership
  • locally led agendas for positive change and multi-issue organizing
  • growing local food, community food systems, and local food commerce for greater food security and sovereignty
  • youth development

Good Work continues to support entrepreneurs and leaders by providing direct assistance and helping strengthen relationships among local entrepreneurs, community leaders, nonprofit organizations, and service providers.  We aim to help (a) expand the pipeline of entrepreneurs, (b) improve service delivery, and (c) encourage culturally appropriate community leadership.
