Community Impact Certificate

The Community Impact Certificate is designed for community leaders who are interested in amplifying the impact of their mission by mobilizing their community for system-level changes. In the three core workshops, participants will discuss the use of the collective impact framework as well as community organizing strategies and policy advocacy movements that seek to “move the needle” on complex issues.

The Community Impact Certificate also utilizes virtual coaching sessions after each of the core workshops to create greater understanding of the material shared and identify meaningful ways to integrate these concepts moving forward.

During the learning experience, participants will explore how to cause real change that improves lives as well as be a part of a problem-solving, peer network that is dedicated to connecting, sharing ideas, and creating a better future for others.

Stay tuned! The Community Impact Certificate is on hold for 2023 and will return in 2024.
