Collective Action

``Creating a bridge to longterm career success

Collective Action is a method of changing our community so that every connected nonprofit is a building block in a person’s unique path out of poverty. By leveraging technology and data, TechBridge ensures that community members have access to the right help and the right resources at the right time.

Collaboratives are a key part of Collective Action. By bringing together cross-sector organizations focused on solving common community problems, TechBridge helps drive and support coordination within the collaborative. Collaboration improves efficiency, increases positive outcomes, and foments lasting community change.
