Join Ron Dwyer-Voss, Steve Kretzmann, Mike Green and Deb Wisniewski for a two-day learning event focused on putting Asset-Based Community Development principles into practice.

Join us for an engaging and interactive learning event. Learn how to put the fundamental principles
and practices of Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD) into action. Build more community engagement and involvement. This event will focus on understanding ABCD principles and applying them to mobilizing people, organizations, and communities.

ABCD in Action is a learning experience that familiarizes participants with the basic ABCD concepts, shares tools to put concepts into practice, and provides opportunities for participants to develop their skills in using the tools to improve programs and the effectiveness of their nonprofit organization, collaborative or local agency.

Participants in ABCD in Action will work on real life situations and develop action plans to take home. Part of the training will emphasize how to include and engage traditionally excluded people (usually “labeled” people with disabilities or illness, youth, seniors, immigrant communities, etc.)

Participants in the training will be able to:
• Tap into the unique gifts of individuals and the power of voluntary associations
• Engage institutions (health agencies, schools, social services) with their communities and vice versa.
• Sustain community organizations and leaders
• Build successful partnerships
• Find and mobilize organizational assets and community assets to work together for stronger projects and programs
• Use social networking to develop more connected local communities where relationships among people grow
