About The Constellation Network
We exist to build and equip networks of leaders and doers to strategically advance the common good in Southern Chester County.
imagine a community that thrives together
Wouldn’t we all want to live in a world where people acted in the best interest of others rather than themselves? Where the golden rule was the norm and loving your neighbor seemed second nature? Wouldn’t we all yearn for a world in which peer pressure on our youth, if it existed at all, was positive and not negative? Where the arts celebrated the best of humanity and not the worst? Where business considered the broad impact of its investments and not just its own bottom line?
We all have a yearning for a community thriving on all fronts. It is a desire for “the way things ought to be.”
The constellation we envision is a network of people and organizations that work together to advance the common good. Consider reading this article on Collective Impact from Stanford Social Innovation Review to get a better idea on what this can look like right in our backyard!
