We provide a range of opportunities for the community to learn from experts and community leaders, and give back. Monthly evening programs after our Community Dinners provide an introductory window into our initiatives, including a book reading with author and poet Kevin Young. We also hosted a talk on American Growth and Global Leadership with United States Army General Wesley Clark, in partnership with the New Canaan Library. Programming from Thanksgiving through the end of the year engages the public with service opportunities, including hands-on assembling of essentials for Fairfield County families over the holidays.
Our intimate meeting spaces and staff expertise create substantive opportunities for new and returning not-for-profit partners. In addition to supporting 32 organizations through space grants, we host roundtables around our initiatives, along with the support of our partners including nature-focused organizations. We also collaborate with our Justice team for training in the areas of trafficking, domestic violence, sexual assault, and trauma.
