Community Organizing/Development

Community organizing is a process by which people are brought together to act in common self-interest. Community organizers create social movements by building a base of concerned people, mobilizing these community members to act, and developing leadership from and relationships among the people involved.

Community development seeks to empower individuals and groups of people by providing these groups with the skills they need to effect change in their own communities.

Organizations marked as "FWS" have signed contracts with Loyola University to hire one or more Loyola students through the community-based Federal Work-Study program.  Fuller descriptions of each organization, as well as posted volunteer, intern, and paid positions with these and other Chicago-area and national agencies, can be found on Loyola's RamblerLink system.
