Leading by Stepping Back: Building Effective Community and District Partnerships (Palm Spring, CA)

April 18, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) is an approach to community building that focuses on discovering and mobilizing the assets that exist in every community. When we focus on what is already there—lift up and mobilize the gifts and talents of everyday people, and build and honor intentional and authentic relationships—we have the opportunity to begin asking new questions that can lead to sustainable and reciprocal community-centered change.  Ongoing and intentional application of ABCD makes our communities healthier, happier and safer for everyone.

Guided by two powerful speakers, LaMarr D. Shields and Marina Gilmore, this interactive workshop will take participants through the basics of ABCD while offering practical tools that you can put into practice in your communities, schools, and organizations.
