Rooted in a holistic, asset-based approach to development, GroundBreakers supports community-driven futures through prioritizing contexts and embracing cultures as strengths. GroundBreakers works to build local capacities through co-creating knowledge, centralizing best practices, and connecting civic innovators within and across sectors through communities of practice that center peer to peer learning and mentorship opportunities. Through the Solutions Hub, Knowledge Hub, and Network Portal, GroundBreakers is connecting and amplifying the work of civic innovators and the movements they lead.
The GroundBreakers Knowledge Hub is a base of contextualized knowledge production and an action research hub centralizing policy briefs and research around diverse topics of social change. Collections are co-created with civic innovators and the GroundBreakers Scholars Network.
The GroundBreakers Network Portal is a platform for connection, collaboration, peer to peer learning, and knowledge exchange. The network portal facilitates collective action through mobilizing communities of practice and connecting networks locally, regionally, and globally.
