About the training:

The Community Capacity Building (CCB) training provides program professionals with the strategies and tools needed to build capacity in a community. The goal of the training is to help you plan and develop programs for communities that promote capacity building. The modules provide a set of principles and practices with broad application to families, communities and situations. These practices will allow you to mobilize others in support of results that improve lives.

Once you’ve completed this training, you’ll understand the Community Capacity Building approach and the importance of connections in family support. You’ll learn how to apply this strengths-based, results-oriented approach in the work you do and how to use the assets and relationships in your community to achieve the results you want to see. In addition, you will understand how Community Capacity Building can positively affect mission and family readiness.

The training is self-paced and allows you to stop, save and resume when it is convenient for you. The training is separated into two parts – Fundamentals of CCB and Advanced CCB, for a total of nine modules between both sections.
