Changemaker Network


Love Ventura's Westside?  Like to work and play with other while making a difference?

Then Changemakers is the group for you!

The Changemaker Network connects the WCDC to friends and neighbors who like to turn ideas into action. Members contribute their ideas through the WCDC Idea Hubs, find support in taking their ideas to the next level, are offered opportunities to volunteer and get to celebrate their efforts during fun mixers.

Launched in June 2017, Changemakers have already made great things happen, like the Paul Herzog Ocean Friendly Garden at the corner of Mission and Ventura Ave., the Navigating Your Future workshop series for young adults, and the Avenue Tree Planting project. And we are just getting started!

Changemakers play a critical role in helping the WCDC set great ideas in motion.

Changemakers member fees make it possible for the WCDC to help develop future projects. Because we are funded primarily through grants, our resources must be directed towards already-planned projects. The membership fees underwrite our ability to incubate ideas and connect them to potential resources. Just joining makes a difference!
