Take the Engaged Neighbor Pledge

We aim to get 100,000 Americans to take the Engaged Neighbor pledge online before the end of 2030. Pledge to work toward becoming an engaged neighbor. We can help make our neighborhoods clean, safe, and friendly by pledging to pursue the "Engaged Neighbor" principles. Take the Engaged Neighbor pledge(opens in new window).

Neighboring takes effort, time and purposeful planning. But the effort will benefit both you and your community. David Burton, a county engagement specialist with University of Missouri Extension, is working statewide to train people to be engaged neighbors. This page contains resources that will help.

Would you like 30 minutes to visit on the topic of neighboring and how it can help your family, your neighborhood and community? Contact David Burton to schedule a phone call or Zoom. David is also available for group presentations in person or via Zoom.
