Sunrise Project takes an equity approach to designing projects and also informing local policy. Rather than deciding as staff what we think is best for the community, we reach out and listen to people of all backgrounds and ages and work with the community to design solutions that are truly meaningful and created by those most impacted.
Sunrise Project is piloting a new leadership and community engagement program called Activate Your Voice! This 3-course program focuses on building leadership skills (using Kansas Leadership Center principles), discovering and exploring your passions, and learning about the many ways to be involved in the Lawrence and Douglas County community.
A huge thanks to the Kansas Health Foundation for funding this new and exciting program!
