About REM
REM (Revitalize the Energy in ME, where ME stands for both “Maine” and “me”) is a grassroots nonprofit organization that supports a network of citizen volunteers working to improve the quality of life in Central Maine. In REM, work is cooperative, diversity is honored, self-reliance is promoted, and civic life is renewed.

REM was born out of people’s desire to connect and to create a future that reflects their desires, needs, and creativity. REM leaders work to search for new ways to provide opportunities for the diversity of the community to work together. This involves:

Building Consensus
Expanding Teamwork Skills
Valuing “Doers” and “Dreamers”
Learning How to Help Both Work Together Well
Learning How to Bridge the Gap Between the Vision and the Reality
REM has eight priorities, which were established at a three-day Community Catalyst Forum in January 1996 in which over 250 area residents participated. These priorities are:

Develop a Vibrant Economy
Excel in Education
Protect Human Potential
Promote Arts & Entertainment
Beautify the Environment
Empower Young People
Build Community
Expand Fitness & Recreation
Participants in the Catalyst also composed a vision statement, describing the world that they aspired to create in Central Maine over the next quarter century.
