Neighbors Together is a community training program. This program brings communities together towards a common safety goal.

How it works:

  1. Community groups meet to identify a safety interest;
  2. We develop a shared agreement of the training topic;
  3. The Community Safety Team coordinates a training with the group.

Our team has designed trainings for groups of 5 or more people who live, work, go to school, or play in Portland. Trainings are currently conducted virtually.
