Practising Highly Effective Asset-Based Community Development
Posted by on June 8, 2009
Join us in Chicago September 10-12, 2009 for a training workshop titled “Practicing Highly Effective Asset-Based Community Development.” Coordinated by CommUniversity, registration begins May 1, 2009.
Welcome to ABCD
The Asset-Based Community Development Institute (ABCD) is at the center of a large and growing movement that considers local assets as the primary building blocks of sustainable community development. Building on the skills of local residents, the power of local associations, and the supportive functions of local institutions, asset-based community development draws upon existing community strengths to build stronger, more sustainable communities for the future.
We invite you to learn about the institute and its work in the university and community context. Please also visit our staff and faculty pages, and become acquainted with our many community partners. We hope you will join us in building strong communities.
