Starting a Community Project in Uncertain Times
September 15 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Do you have an idea for a project to make a positive change in your community?
Many of us have great ideas for the change we want to see in the world, but we also have questions about how to get started and maintain progress. In this two-part webinar, we’ll address the steps to initiate your own community-based project and help you get started. Perhaps you could lead a monthly beach cleanup, volunteer to run a school library, raise funds for playground equipment, train teens to prepare for summer jobs — or pursue other projects that benefit coming generations.
At our first session on September 15, we’ll discuss your skills and interests, and we’ll cover the basic elements of project development and implementation, and tips on how to gather needed resources, overcome obstacles, and more. You will also connect with a buddy for mutual support between sessions.
At our second session on September 29, you’ll share progress on your projects, and discuss areas where you might be stuck and how to push through. We will also cover strategies and resources to hold your vision and engage others.
Between Sessions 1 and 2, you will be invited to undertake personal research and to further develop your project. At the end of the webinar you will have clarified your project idea, developed a plan and taken your first steps towards your vision.
This two-part webinar is offered by SAGE and Elders Action Network (EAN) to help the people in our communities to create their legacies. The registration fee for the entire webinar is $20, $30 or $40, depending on your ability to pay.
