The Blackshires.net is a pilot of the Elevate Platform here in Berkshire County to “Help communities work better together while Elevating them to Success.”
The Platform’s goal is to foster deep, trust-based relationships, as participating community stakeholders have the opportunity to realize more potential by working together.
In its first Elevate Platform pilot phase, Blackshire.net, is an interactive directory, media initiative, and community development network highlighting black culture, organizations, businesses, people, and resources in Berkshire County in one central digital location.
Our goal at team R3SET goal is to bridge the communication and relationship gap between the Black community stakeholders and the more prominent community stakeholders in Berkshire county. In addition, the Blackshires.net pilot program is designed to facilitate learning by bringing community stakeholders together to share insights over time that will continue to improve the platform experience.
