CIVIC ENGAGEMENT

Civic participation shows a community’s willingness to address the unmet needs of its residents. This can be impacted by several factors, including how connected residents feel to the place they live.

 

The majority of Miami-Dade County residents are transplants from out of the state or country, which may explain our lower engagement rates. Encouragement from employers, along with the continued investment in Miami’s growing volunteer platforms and civic leadership incubators, will help address this issue.

 

We identified the following goal and metrics below as a good target for our success:
