Lunch & Learns
Our work follows an Asset Based Community Development strategy (see http://www.abcdinstitute.org/). Using this strategy, we seek to build on and support community assets and work to mobilize individuals, associations, and institutions to come together to build on to their existing assets. We work with organizations to identify assets and to chart their Social Change Strategic Plan. This approach focuses on the potential of a community. Many communities address social and economic problems with only a small number of the community’s total capacity. This is the challenge and opportunity of community engagement. Our strategy starts with the assumption that EVERYONE IN A COMMUNITY HAS SOMETHING TO OFFER.
Side Project's mission is to promote social justice and social change by incubating and developing grassroots projects.
A contemporary coworking office where entrepreneurs, freelancers, remote workers, and the self-employed can be productive, collaborate and find community.
Nonprofits First's mission is to strengthen the nonprofit sector by maximizing their capacity to deliver services through accreditation, leadership development, education, and management support services.
