Community Collaborations

This set of learning modules are designed for people interested in working together to deal effectively with a problem facing their community. Citizens often feel frustrated because they do not know how to effectively participate and become angry because they feel shut out. Elected officials often fear or fight citizen involvement in public policy making because they feel their ability to lead narrowed by powerful interest groups. The purpose of these materials is to help community activists, business people, politicians, educators, and parents take new leadership roles to help others in their community work together and achieve results.

Online versions of the modules are forthcoming. Please check back. If you would like email notification when they are ready please write John Tubbs.
