Community cohesion refers to the aspect of togetherness and bonding exhibited by members of a community, the "glue" that holds a community together. This might include features such as a sense of common belonging or cultural similarity.
Examples of community cohesion are evident in community organizations that attempt social integration of multicultural societies and ethnic minority group communities through raising awareness, involvement in community programs, youth engagement, and linking charitable organizations. Examples of community cohesion can come in various forms, from charitable grant foundations to voluntary youth club organizations that provide culturally sensitive youth work.
