Intro to Asset Based Community Development - Registration
ABCD focuses on how to organize people in communities, including effective use of existing community assets in neighborhoods. Through a series of exercises that build community, participants learn how to reach out to neighbors, bring them together to address problems, work toward shared goals, and build strong and organized communities. The mapping portion of the session will assist participants in identifying and discovering the obvious and hidden assets within their communities. Participants will begin to work on individual, associational, institutional, and community mapping tools for their neighborhoods and learn how to apply this information to connect issues and needs with assets.
This course will be held on Monday, April 8 at 6:00 p.m.
