Community Building Institute
The Community Building Institute (CBI) series offers participants intentional approaches to community entry, needs assessment, and helps folks with tools to start and sustain community-driven programs and initiatives. As part of MTCC’s commitment to being an inclusive and community-centered network, this training offers strategies for bringing an equity lens to community change, and supporting the work of people from low-income and minority backgrounds.
CBI is based on the community-building framework, or “6 steps,” that are used as a model for sustainable community development initiatives. This training includes six, web-based hour-long sessions facilitated by community leaders. Participants have opportunities to interact with trainers and are provided support materials and receive a certificate upon completion of the training. Our next session will be offered in February 2020. Click here for more information.
