Collaboration in Community Transformation
Break barriers. Launch effective partnerships.
Designed specifically for faith community leaders, this two-day interactive workshop will help you learn the nuts and bolts of launching and leading effective partnerships that can tackle significant issues and make a lasting change in our local communities.
You will learn key principles that can be applied in any community partnership and you will get an in-depth look at successful cross-sector partnerships that have brought together the faith community, local government, business, nonprofit, and social service organizations.
By the end of these two days, you will walk away with practical tools and specific steps you can take in your own partnership initiatives.
