The ABCD Institute at DePaul University is proud to present a 2.5 day basic training event In Aurora, Colorado that introduces the core principles and applications of Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD) in the context of local communities. Presentations and discussions will occur in light of current conversations about equity and social justice and will enable participants to think deeper about responses to these challenges. Day three of the event will include site visits.

Who Should Attend People who seek an introduction to ABCD in the context of local geographic communities. Though not a requirement, experience shows that the effectiveness of the training is greater when more than one person from the same organization attend together. This training may also serve as a “refresher” opportunity on ABCD basics for others who are already somewhat familiar with the approach.

When and Where The two and a half day event will be held September 26, 27 and 28, 2018 at Elevation Christian Church in Aurora, CO. Each day will begin at 8:30 am with days one and two ending at 4:30 pm and day three ending at 12:30 pm. Lunch will be provided on-site days one and two as an inclusive part of the training while evenings are open for informal gatherings and sharing at the personal expense of participants. Lodging is the responsibility of each registrant though a list of possible locations under FAQ's may assist registrants in making their personal arrangements.

Workshop Leaders The course will be led by four experienced ABCD Faculty and Fellows affiliated with the ABCD Institute at DePaul University - Rachel Dahlke, Ron Dwyer-Voss, Rubin Medina and Dacia Steiner. The Co-Founder of the ABCD Institute, John McKnight, will also make a guest presentation. Bios of each of the leaders can be found by clicking on their photos below.
