My Block, My Hood, My City

For Jahmal Cole, founder of My Block, My Hood, My City, struggle is nothing new. Long ago he learned how to pull himself out of any dark space: serving others. In his new book, Cole explores the power of building community and helping your neighbors — and lets you know how easy it is to get started. 

This month, Block Club is joining Cole in asking this question: “What’s something simple I can do that will have a positive impact on my block?” Do you see a need you can fulfill on your block? Do you have an idea for a project that would improve the block for your family and your neighbors? 

Submit your ideas here by December 31. Then, the My Block, My Hood, My City team will give out $25,000 in grants so dozens of you can put your vision into action. Looking for inspiration? You can buy Jahmal’s book here or check out incredible community service projects from his organization here.
