About Us

a micro college built as a social enterprise to:

faciltate integrated approaches that foster self reliance and resilience as an alternative to dependency on direct service provision. Ultimately it is about supporting staff, citizens, and elected officials to strengthen their capacity for collaborating and partnering with other stakeholders in the broader community. 

...because together we can ensure "communities without silos".

We have thousands of resources, online training and a thriving community of leaders ready to help you!

Why Community Building?

group

Communities get stronger when their leaders do. And, local leadership is stronger, more relevant, and responsive when business, government, and the voluntary sector work together for collective impact and comprehensive community transformation.

What People Are Saying

Thank you for the opportunity to participate in this course! I have richly benefited from the modules and learning opportunity. There is a part of me that is going to miss not having this as a regular part of my work as it was a great opportunity to refocus on what and why I do what I do. Thank you doesn’t seem enough, but I hope to demonstrate my gratitude by what is accomplished in this community.

Our communities need learners to go out and promote their beliefs and to shape their concepts of a society. I believe this is what the Campus for Communities' training seeks to do---not teach but rather to get us out the door so we work our ideas, albeit many of them sewn by you...

This learning experience is really kick starting some great initiatives and community development planning. We are getting as much for the community as people are getting for themselves taking the courses. You are really doing great work!
