Imagine. Make a difference in Norfolk. Virginia. And beyond.

**Thank you to all who attended our first-ever Engage Norfolk event on  Sunday, February 12 from 1-5pm!**  

We had over 1000 people in attendance, plus more than 100 organizations represented, 59 volunteers and 4 fabulous co-sponsors!!!!  View the photo gallery of the exciting day we had engaging citizens.

Answering the demand for civic engagement opportunities for Norfolk's residents (and beyond!) to connect their passions and values with organizations making a difference in our city, our region, our state, our country and our world.

  • CivicFAIR: A showcase of the many organizations in our community.
  • Civic Workshops: Learn how to run for office, contact your elected officials, turn your passion into action, and more.
  • Civic Motivation:  Meet others like you who are ready to get to work!

“One person can make a difference, and everyone should try.”

— President John F. Kennedy

The CivicFAIR is your opportunity to meet community organizations and determine where to channel your energy and interests into positive change. 


Attend informative Civic Workshops led by community members and experts providing effective examples and tips for making a difference in Norfolk and beyond.

In addition to our CivicFAIR and workshops, there will be opportunities to make donations to organizations in need, as well as to participate in a community art project!

Want to attend Engage Norfolk on February 12th?  The event is FREE and open to the public!
