OBF Topic Page – VLBE

This is the first draft for

Very Low Barrier to Entry: Make it easy for people to take the first step toward a new life of civic engagement.

Many people find the challenges of their personal to be overwhelming enough. The idea of adding another activity, however desired or useful, seems impossible. VLBE means Very Low Barrier to Entry. What that means is that getting started with one of the projects is extremely undemanding, and as often as possible designed to play to people’s strengths, to match up with their sense of fun, and to fit in to the existing constraints of their lives. And that VLBE activity is nevertheless useful and meaningful. Activities are designed so that increasing levels of participation are smooth and manageable.
