About PROPEL’s Community Engagement Initiative

Last year PROPEL launched a new Community Engagement Initiative with the intention of helping individuals expand their professional development by engaging directly with the local community, while also promoting and supporting the work of local nonprofit organizations.  

The current focus of the Community Engagement Initiative is PROPEL's In Focus Event Series: The series was conceived in 2015 with a grant from the Maine Development Foundation through the Realize Maine Network. Today the series stands on its own and provides a means for young people to learn about nonprofits, identify opportunities to volunteer, offer free professional services, and serve on nonprofit boards in Greater Portland, Maine. Learn more about the series and see photos and information about our past events on the In Focus Event Series page

The newest program within PROPEL's Community Engagement Initiative is a partnership with several local organizations to support New Mainer culinary entrepreneurs.  Check out the New Mainer Culinary Entrepreneur Program page to learn more about the new program.
