Social Capital

The Town of Pittsfield has many community projects and initiatives ongoing which enhance our citizens' quality of life.  We are indeed fortunate to have so many volunteers and community organizations interested in enhancing our town.

Not everyone is interested in joining community organizations and boards/committees.  Many people like to help out here and there or work on a few projects during the year.  There is much that you can do that helps your neighborhood and community.

While reviewing resources, we came across this list of "150 Things You can Do To Build Social Capital."  The list is posted below for your use. 

"This list is from the web site of The Saguaro Seminar:  Civic Engagement in America, an ongoing initiative of Professor Robert D. Putnam at the John F. Kennedy Schol of Government at Harvard University.  The project focuses on expanding what we know about our levels of trust and community engagement and on developing strategies and efforts to increase this engagement."
