OUR
TEAM

Forward Brunswick is a diverse volunteer civic improvement organization of experienced business and community leaders. We connect with, listen to, and embrace everyone who lives, works, learns or plays in the historic City of Brunswick. Together, citizens engage to articulate what means the most to them and their friends and family. Equipped with this knowledge, Forward Brunswick collaborates with other agencies and individuals. By securing funding from individuals, businesses, foundations and government sources Forward Brunswick gets results. We are guided by the sentiments in this anonymous quotation suggested by one of our board members: “Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in.” – Author Unknown
