This is a sample story to show you how the feature works. We welcome you to come share your own story and let us know about your experiences from working on collective impact efforts. Through these stories of impact, we all can learn more on how to strengthen our efforts, overcome challenges, and support each other.
System changes can come in all shapes and sizes. What have you seen in your community related to your collective impact work?
Even if you haven't reached your end-goal yet, what results have you seen so far?
So much of our efforts are about working with the community to improve lives and to build a better place where all can thrive and prosper. From the little changes to the big, how have you seen your community grow through these efforts?
Collective impact work isn't easy, and is more marathon than sprint, but often our journeys are dotted with moments that light the way and keep us moving forward. What are you most proud of related to your work? What shines to you as some of your brightest lights of hope, gratitude and inspiration?
It's sometimes hardest to talk about the "hard stuff," but it's also sometimes what connects us the most, and makes the work the most real and relatable. What have been some of the toughest challenges that you've experienced? What have you learned through these moments?
We all probably have assumptions when we get into the process of collaborating on big, complex problems together. What surprised you the most from your work?
Every day, there's a new person starting out and wondering what to expect. What would you recommend to them from what you've learned so far?
We look forward to reading your stories! To share your own, visit the submission page.
