Community Mobilization Training for Community Service Organizations
Do you feel like your organization struggles with how best to engage community members in your programs and services and as a result, you’re missing-out on valuable input and feedback needed to enhance their design and delivery? Or maybe you feel overwhelmed by the complexity of of the community and the task-at-hand and don’t even know where to start? These are common dilemmas that ALL community service organizations encounter at one time or another. If not dealt-with, they can lead to frustration, burnout, and potentially, a loss of purpose, relevance and eventually organizational breakdown.
About Village Earth’s Community Mobilization Training
Village Earth understands that all community work takes place within a dynamic and often contested political space; personalities clash, cultural understanding and norms collide, organizational structures and practices can become too rigid or even irrelevant, and priorities can become warped by our obligations to funders or other outside interests. To be truly effective, we believe community organizations must be accountable to the communities they were established to serve. This requires that accountability be incorporated into both your organization’s culture as well as its organizational structure.
