The community is the place where personal quality of life exists. Organizations facilitate personal quality of life when they are integrated in their community.
CQL is offering a new and engaging workshop experience. We come right to your organization and your community, bringing together a unique blend of experiential exercises to explore quality of life within a community context through four different lenses:
- Exploring & Experiencing
- Strategizing & Sharing
LENS brings together organization staff, people supported, families and community members over three days to move through a series of structured activities that build on each other.
Go Learn: gather factual data about your community and identify assets and priorities
Go Explore: go out into the community and gather impressions and experiences
Go Inward: focus on the organization's own assets and priorities
Go Network: identify and match community priorities with your own
Go Forward: create a measurable and practical action plan for engaging with your community to bring about real change
"CQL's Community Life® LENS offers a terrific opportunity to reframe our thinking from service provision to community building, and to build our future strategies around our strengths rather than our needs. A wonderful takeaway is a methodology to determine how to best approach community building from the perspective of the work we do as service providers."
