Over the past two decades Empowerment Institute has developed a highly effective community organizing framework and citizen behavior change and engagement tools which it calls “Social Change 2.0.” It has successfully built the capacity of several thousand community change agents in this approach who in turn have empowered hundreds of thousands of people to adopt prosocial behaviors around many issues.
Empowerment Institute provides community organizers with the strategies, tools and design expertise to integrate the Social Change 2.0 framework into a community initiative. As part of this toolkit it provides four turnkey community-based behavior change programs. These programs can be used as part of an existing initiative or as the foundation for a new one. These programs are described below.
