Civic Engagement

CELIE has developed a unique research-based civic engagement education and training framework for purposeful and transformative organizations and leaders. CELIE provides best-in-class information, programs, education and training resources that allow attendees and sponsors to advance democratic engagement and deliver results that are most impactful and meaningful to them and the larger communities they represent.

Our approach is citizen-centric and is supported by two advocacy/civic engagement initiatives: (1) PolicyThink and (2) the Freedom Factory.  These programs provide innovative working models that seamlessly connect a civic engagement best practices event platform to a social media charged, change agent and transformative engagement resource.

PolicyThink is a researched-based best-practices civic engagement event platform that provides social impact convenings and programs that harness the power of the collective, and training related to optimum use of social media, including the engagement of experts, influencers and leaders.

Freedom Factory provides programs in the form of seminars, workshops, customized programs and focus groups connecting citizens, leaders and others in ways that support and increase democratic engagement, exchange and inclusion.
