Montevallo Collaborative

Welcome to Montevallo Collaborative’s online working group.

MISSION-
The goal of the Montevallo Collaborative is to function as a facilitator between those in need of services and those with the time and skills to provide them within the Montevallo community. In doing so we hope to bridge any divide and strengthen ties between the multiple facets of the community of Montevallo

ABOUT-
Through our mission to strengthen ties between groups and individuals in the Montevallo community, we hope to bridge any divides within Montevallo for the betterment of our community and enrichment of all our lives. These diverse organizations and individuals include University/ student organizations, local Not-for-profit organizations, local businesses, neighborhood associations, the elderly, youth, faith based organizations and the underprivileged. We are not a political nor a faith based organization.
Utilizing a consensus model at our meetings and a horizontal method of leadership. (Read more about Consensus) http://zinelibrary.info/files/Consensus%20Achieved.pdf
We hope to keep hierarchy (top-down leadership) within the group to a minimum and encourage those who are interested to involve themselves as much as they are comfortable with doing so. The function of our organizational meetings is handling logistics of current activities, maintenance and growth of the group, and ensuring we are fulfilling our prime directives, as described in the mission statement, to the best of our abilities.
Through the system we have devised, interested parties will be able to contact the Montevallo Collaborative in order to be added to our data base of contacts and connect with community members with skills relevant to their needs. Members are encouraged to use what they need and give what they can.
