RURAL COMMUNITY BUILDING

Rural Community Building provides training and certification for staff, volunteers, or elected officials who want to make a difference and are serving in formal or informal community leadership roles. It is suitable for a variety of organizations, committees, networks, businesses, and sectors e.g. health, social services, economic development, education, justice, libraries, elected officials, recreation, agricultural, arts, co-operatives, environment, faith communities etc. It will be especially relevant for those who are working with other stakeholders to address complex issues and are committed to facilitating the social innovation and transformation needed for their organizations and communities.

Upon completion of this certificate, participants will be better able to:

  • serve as a catalyst for positive community change and growth;
  • engage citizens and partner stakeholders by applying a community development approach, and;
  • demonstrate personal growth as a community leader.
