Asset-based community development two-day training

For more than 25 years, communities have used asset-based community development (ABCD) as a strength-based approach to change. ABCD builds community from the inside out as residents become producers.

Asset mapping is a fundamental tool that discovers the gifts of individuals. At a two-day ABCD training, learn about its power as well as the power of networks, associations and local organizations that are leveraged to create change. Time banking is one asset-based approach that builds community and improves the quality of life while promoting the free exchange of talent and work.

Mark Chupp, director of the Community Innovation Network at Case Western Reserve and faculty member at the ABCD Institute at DePaul University, and Indigo Bishop, ACBD Institute fellow, will lead this two-day training session Nov. 2–3 at the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Community Studies Center. Each day, the training will be conducted from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The Community Innovation Network at Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences will host this event.
