What are CELs (Community Engagement Liaisons)
The Community Engagement Liaison Services (CELs) was developed in 2014. CELs provides language, cultural contextualization and interpretation services for City government, corporations and private entities that help improved communication, understanding, and civic engagement. From street and area development, watershed conservation, budget testimony, community gardening to city wide planning, we have reached so many communities that were left out for decades. Our program is dedicated to serve the immigrants and underserved communities with consistent training, active involvement with local agencies, associations and partners. Our services include engagement, facilitation, translation and subject matter resources.
