Whether you’re trying National Neighborhood Days for the first time, or you’re a seasoned veteran looking for a challenge, this page offers an overall framework for approaching NND and some resources to help you carry out your event.

Good luck and happy neighboring!

  1. Define Success

What do you hope to get out of organizing an NND in your community?

In a year? In five years?

2. Find Buddies

Who else might share your interests in organizing this event?

3. What Work? (Spring)

Make a short list (3-5) of possible work projects to undertake.

Evaluate them for their ability to attract volunteers and make a difference.

4. Party Place (Fall)

What is the best civic space in your neighborhood? Hold your event there.

If you don’t have a good space you might make this a Spring project next year!

5. Share

Post your accomplishments on social media using the hashtag #nnd2019!

6. Wash, Rinse, Repeat

Plan early to save the date and keep building on progress the next year.
