Community Service Interns

Community Service Interns (CSI’s) work cooperatively with the Parks Department, Planning Department and Police Department to provide neighborhood based public services such as directing residents to proper resources, educating individuals/groups on various issues/ordinances, and providing other community outreach support to the residents as required. CSI’s work closely with Green Bay’s neighborhood associations and provide a conduit to city services. CSI’s are typically criminal justice students. The program serves as an excellent opportunity to develop leaders. You will see the CSI’s at nearly every city sponsored event.

Neighborhood Watch Program


The Elements of Success

  • Build a sense of community
  • Get neighbors talking with each other on a regular basis.
  • Make sure neighbors know how to communicate with each other.  Each should have a list of names and numbers of other neighbors.
  • Work together to solve problems in the area.
  • Involve as many neighbors as possible, including both landlords and tenants.
  • Do it – stay involved.
    • Resist the urge to put it off until tomorrow or resist the need to do it perfectly.  Set a timeline and stick to it!
    • Encourage other involvement, but do it yourself if necessary.
  • Purchase and place Block Watch signs.
  • Select at least one neighbor to attend neighborhood association meetings.
    • The association can be strengthened by your involvement.
    • The block can be strengthened by networking to the larger community.
  • At Every Meeting

    • Get a record of participants:  name, address, and phone number.
    • Use name tags.  You will learn each other’s names faster.
    • Have everyone introduce himself/herself.  It breaks the ice and encourages inclusion.
    • Delegate responsibilities as much as possible.
    • NEVER end the meeting wtihout scheduling the next meeting date and time, even if it is six months later.
