Leadership Park City Class 26 Announces Class Project
Class 26 of Leadership Park City will focus on kindness, Census awareness and communication amid COVID-19
Summit County, Utah (April 20, 2020) — Leadership Park City’s Class 26 is proud to announce their class project. As part of the year-long program, the class envisions, plans, and implements a class service project to benefit the Summit County community. In past years, projects have supported public art, green building, water conservation, voter awareness, and many more. Each year, projects are selected by the class through a voting process during the March session, held virtually in 2020 due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In response to the pandemic, this year’s class voted in support of a ‘Leadership Network’ effort focused in three areas: a Park City of Kindness campaign, community awareness of the 2020 Census, and support of the Neighborhood Network program through Park City Municipal.
Park City of Kindness aims to inspire kindness in our community by leading, educating, and encouraging compassion, gratitude, and joy through partnership with local government, businesses, schools, neighbors, and non-profit organizations. For 26 days, beginning April 22, Park City of Kindness will encourage the community to share what they are grateful for tagging #26DaysAttitudeOfGratitude, @ParkCityOfKindness (Facebook), and @ParkCity_of_Kindness (Instagram) on social media. For additional details, resources, and inspiration regarding ways to bring kindness into your business, organization, and everyday life visit ParkCityOfKindness.org.
The 2020 Census subgroup will develop and execute a public relations campaign to increase awareness and participation in the Census along the Wasatch Back. The COVID-19 pandemic has created a challenge to public processes, such as local elections, and is compounded by existing fear of the government. Class 26’s efforts are intended to supplement existing census awareness and promotion efforts conducted by City, County, and State Census coordinators. Additionally, the class will collaborate with local media, religious organizations, non-profits, and other organizations to spread information across the Wasatch Back, especially more vulnerable communities.
Class 26’s Communications Team will help to help establish the Neighborhood Network to facilitate community communication. The network will allow for communication of important news, programs for business owners, front line workers, and vulnerable community members during the various stages of the COVID-19 response and in the future. The Team will collaborate with the City and County as communication needs evolve, and hope to develop a tool that will endure into the future to create and strengthen sustainable neighborhoods.
