Community Needs Assessment (Part 1)
November 9 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
This Empower Series event is presented by The Virginia Foundation for Healthy Youth and Prevention Connections.
A community assessment is a valuable strategy for obtaining a clear picture of your community. In this very interactive workshop participants will work together to identify local assets as well as problem areas. As you think of starting a new project/program/service or change directions of an existing one in your community using the right tools to conduct a community assessment is critical.
Key Learning Objectives:
- Learn how to build your organization to address specific problems.
- Learn how to identify community assets that encourage competence, confidence, connection, and character
- Identify the risks that youth and families face and the resources and strengths your community has to address them.
- Learn how you can successfully reach out to organizations or coalitions in your community that include schools, faith institutions, policy makers, employers, government agencies, community members, families, and other key players.
This two-part workshop is instructed by Alejandro Garcia Barbon.
