Welcome to ENGAGE

About Us

ENGAGE is a network of students, educators, and community organizers who work to transform learning experiences into lifelong connections and cooperative action between peoples and social movements working for a just and sustainable world.

The following values inform and drive the work of the ENGAGE network:

Collective Action – We support local, grassroots solutions for global challenges.

Education for Solidarity – We use experiential, community-based education tools that encourage learners to become change agents within larger social movements.

Reciprocity – We nurture diverse and mutually-beneficial relationships to support a just and sustainable world.

Anti-Oppression – We work to illuminate and challenge unjust systems of power and oppression on personal, institutional, and societal levels, striving to recognize assets within our network and to leverage these in support of our allies.

Equity of Power – We build collective responsibility through shared leadership, equal participation, and consensus.

Reflective Practice – We highly value our collective process and therefore continually evaluate and refine our goals, projects, communication, and decision-making systems.

ENGAGE currently has one part-time network coordinator working out of Brattleboro, Vermont.  Our Board of Peers advises ENGAGE campaigns and projects and oversees bigger picture organizational development.
