Event description

Description

All are welcome for a free, ticket-required interactive workshop on Asset Based Community Development (ABCD), an approach to community building that focuses on discovering and mobilizing the assets that exist in every community.

This free 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.

Register for tickets to Part I only or register to both Part I and Part II.

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.

WORKSHOP PART I: Friday, Oct. 7 4 pm—7 pm

WORKSHOP PART I: Saturday, Oct. 8 10 am—1 pm

LUNCH 1 pm2 pm (Included lunch for Saturday ticketed participants)

WORKSHOP PART II: Saturday, Oct 8 2 pm5 pm

Workshop Part II builds upon learning from Part I and is open to all registered participants from the first two sessions.

LOCATION: The workshop will be held in Loyola's Cohn Hall, room 131, located underneath the University's Chapel. Free parking is available on Charles Street, Coldspring Lane.
