The Community Building Process
Duration: 2-6 hours
The MacArthur study found that the two strongest predictors of successful aging are frequency of visits with friends and frequency of attendance at meetings of organizations!
This training session discusses specific strategies for attaining membership in the community, including the four stages of the process:
- Getting To Know You
- Developing a Vision
- Getting Connected
- Cultivating Relationships
Agencies with staff who are already engaged in community building may choose to focus intensively on one aspect of the training. Interactive activities are utilized throughout to illustrate the session content.
Additionally, the session could be used for developing solutions to obstacles and sharing difficulties encountered in doing this work. Let us assist your staff with trouble shooting, brain-storming and team problem-solving.
