Civic Summit

The Civic Summit (originally called "Steer the City") is an annual event where young professionals and city leaders come together to discuss issues facing Fort Worth right now (and in the future). The 2017 edition was held on March 4th. We'll have 2018 details in the fall of 2017.

Volunteering


Typically, SteerFW offers six major volunteer opportunities per year -- usually about one every two months. You can find updates, event dates, and context either here or on our Facebook page.

The Keyholders Program


2017 Program currently underway and made possible by our sponsor Northern Realty Group.  Graduate class announced early October.  

Keyholders is a fast-track civic engagement program. Keyholders participants will attend five focused evening sessions throughout the summer and early fall. The sessions cover key aspects of Fort Worth, including history, government, economic development and civic engagement. At each session Keyholders participants will have the opportunity to learn from and network with local leaders in these core topics.

The program culminates with an event allowing Keyholders participants to network and potentially match up with local community organizations that can benefit from a young professional's involvement. Past positions have included Board of Directors shadow seats, marketing, community outreach, etc. The focus of Keyholders is to move participants quickly towards engaging in the city and its organizational infrastructure.

Here are just a few local leaders that we have scheduled to participate in the 2017 program!

Mayor Betsy Price

Councilwoman Ann Zadeh

Fort Worth Historian Quentin McGown

Fort Worth Boys and Girls Club CEO Daphne Barlow Stigliano
