Leveraging Your Assets to Develop a Successful Aging Community Workshop

November 6, 2019
8:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.

The Erickson School of Aging Studies

This dynamic one-day workshop introduces the core principles and applications of Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD) in the context of aging. Participants will learn how to —

  • Assess the resources, skills and experience available in the community;
  • Organize the community around issues that move its members into action; and
  • Determine and take appropriate action that build community capacity and improves the lives of older adults.

Discussions will be framed around current topics such as Age-Friendly community initiatives, and will enable participants to think deeper about responses to challenges to the growing aging population within communities.
