Increase engagement and empower residents to be decision makers for their environment by forming resident committees.
Potential committees could be a café committee that helps select menu items and plan special events within the community. Other committees may be devoted to setting up volunteer opportunities, planning monthly game nights or running your library.
By giving residents an active role, they’ll feel more connected to your community. On top of that, they may be able to help activity staff with activity idea creation and planning.
Committees can be set up in a relaxed fashion, with a couple of residents meeting outside and socially distancing with tea and coffee. They can serve primarily to get residents socializing and thinking about what they want to participate in within their communities.
Meetings can even take place through a video conferencing application, if your residents are familiar with these services.
