Community Swap

Finding a fresh perspective
on your community

Overview

More than 200 communities and thousands of community leaders and residents have participated in the Community Swap program since 1993. Teams of visitors look at all aspects of their partner community's appearance, business climate, schools, and hospitality. The visitors develop a report, with color slides, which they share with their partner community. Extension Educators provide an economic profile of the community to supplement the visitor's report. While the primary benefit is gaining an outsider's perspective of your community, the process helps community leaders set an agenda for action, enhanced by new ideas and a fresh perspective.
