OUR APPROACH TO RADICAL CITIZEN-FOCUSED CHANGE.
Citizenville is a platform to provide people with the tools, resources, and support network to make change in their village. We do this by providing: (1) a robust digital platform and in-person event (GUMBO) for individuals and groups to access an important, and often untapped source of funding—the community itself—while also providing a connection to a like minded community and new potential volunteers. (2) capital investments and mentorships to social entrepreneurs who are rethinking what’s possible in Mississippi through technology. (3) a (physical) space for community to eat, work, meet, live, and play in the heart of downtown Jackson. (4) educating the next generation of change makers through a project-based, technology and social entrepreneurship focused curriculum.
