Learn how communities can rediscover local assets and mobilize strengths to build strategies for more self-reliant communities. Travel to Savannah’s historic neighborhoods to meet and hear neighborhood residents discuss their ABCD stories – from small grants to association mapping.

Workshop for public sector officials and non-profit leaders. The sessions will review the principles of asset-based community, see the application of ABCD, engage in small group problem solving, and present ABCD tools and techniques. Participate in “nuts and a bolts” conversations. This workshop is designed for police officers, code enforcement inspectors, planners, neighborhood organizers, non-profit leaders and other neighborhood support staff.
