Join us for a fast paced, interactive, virtual training titled ‘Community – Defining, Understanding, Connecting.’ In this session, we’ll look at what community means to you and the people you support and explore why it’s even important to think about. This session will cover:
- The importance of relationships and social capital in becoming connected in the community.
- How to use a person-centered approach to discover people’s interests, strengths, gifts, desires, etc. to understand where to target our community connection activities.
- Barriers and most importantly strategies to supporting people to be active, contributing members of the communities in which they live.
