The ABCD Institute at DePaul University is proud to present a two full day basic training event that introduces the core principles and applications of Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD) in the context of local geographical communities. Presentations and discussions will occur in light of current conversations about equity and justice and will enable participants to think deeper about responses to these challenges.

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 2-day event will be held June 12 and June13, 2018, at the Lincoln Park campus of DePaul University in Chicago. Each day will begin at 8:30am with day one ending at 5pm and the second ending at 4pm. Lunch will be provided on-site 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 affiliated with the ABCD Institute at DePaul University, Byron White, Mary Nelson, and Mike Green. 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.
