Rebuilding Your Community

A group of 6 people are facing the camera and smiling. They are holding certificates up underneath their faces.

Rebuilding Your Community is a hybrid course for community-focused practitioners and leaders looking for new approaches to building and releasing the capacity of their communities.

This short course will provide knowledge and practical tools to enable you to work with communities towards their picture of flourishing.

Starting with an understanding of the complexity of a community, the course will open dialogue on what a flourishing community looks like. We will then explore the role of practitioners and leaders in unearthing the skills and agency already present in a community.

The course will enable participants to

  • Use and apply language and tools that truly empower local communities
  • Be able to use the Flourishing Framework® to unearth community aspiration towards the common good
  • Understand and apply asset-based community development and other capacity building tools

There will also be the opportunity to build significant relationships with other like-minded practitioners and leaders.

Register your interest to find out more before our second semester course begins in October.

Certificate in Faith Based Innovation

A group of 6 people are facing the camera and smiling. They are holding certificates up underneath their faces.

A collaboration with New York University's Bronfman Centre, the Certificate in Faith Based Innovation from CBBC is an online course for faith leaders and practitioners looking for innovative ways to engage with the issues facing our changing world.

This certificate will provide a theoretical basis and practical tools to understand and apply the power of faith-based entrepreneurship to bring real personal and community change.

Starting with a faith-based understanding of the trajectory of change, the certificate will open up dialogue on individual contexts, and how to work in such a way as to promote individual, organizational and community innovation, in the face of continual disruption.

The course will enable participants to

  • be equipped with language and tools to apply innovation and entrepreneurship to their context
  • be able to use the Flourishing Framework® to shape innovation and entrepreneurship toward the common good
  • be able to understand asset-based community development and other capacity building tools as methods of innovation and entrepreneurship

There will also be the opportunity to build significant relationship with like-minded leaders and practitioners.

Training will commence second semester 2022. Register your details to receive updates on this exciting opportunity.
