Sign up now for 2017 Community Connections Learning Labs

The City of Minneapolis Neighborhood and Community Relations Department is pleased to announce the 2017 Community Connections Learning Lab Series. (PDF)

The Community Connections Learning Lab Series is a set of eight classes with the following learning objectives:

  1. Expand participant’s understanding of equitable community engagement. Discover best practices to avoid common pitfalls. Learn techniques that follow the City of Minneapolis’ Core Principles of Community Engagement based on the International Association of Public Participation (IAP2).
  2. Expand participant’s understanding of several of the many cultural communities in Minneapolis. Learn historical beginnings, cultural norms and community contacts; all to enhance your engagement effectiveness in those communities. 

The learning labs are offered in two identical series. Series one will offer 90 minute labs in the afternoon at a City owned location from July through October. Series two will offer 90 minute labs in the evenings from July through December at a community location. This format will give participants maximum flexibility to fit busy and highly demanding schedules. Participants can pick and choose which classes to attend. Those who choose to complete the Community Connections Learning Lab series will be invited to attend a recognition program and will receive a Community Connector Certificate.
 

Who should attend?

Neighborhood staff, board members and volunteers who wish to increase their engagement strategies to include more diversity in neighborhood work as well as in leadership and decision making positions. Also, City employees who wish to enhance their capabilities around equitable community engagement to the diverse population of Minneapolis.

Don’t miss this opportunity to support the City’s goal of One Minneapolis and enhance your outreach capabilities. One Minneapolis: Disparities are eliminated so all Minneapolis residents can participate and prosper.
