Asset-based community development centers around a set of processes that seek to uncover and utilize many strengths within a community. In this interactive workshop, led by executive director of Hopa Mountain, Bonnie Sachatello-Sawyer, explore these processes for citizen engagement along with strength-based tools for community development on Monday, October 17 from 1-3 p.m. at the Bozeman Public Library.
This workshop is open to everyone interested in learning about practical resources and tools to identify, nurture, and mobilize community assets. Asset-based Community Development challenges the traditional approach to solving community problems, which focuses service providers and funding agencies on the needs and deficiencies of communities. These tools utilize community assets as key building blocks in sustainable community revitalization efforts.
This community leadership workshop is sponsored by Hopa Mountain and is free-of-charge. Participants can register by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 586-2455.
