I'm passing on a note to those in Colorado who might be interested.
The Civic Canopy, in partnership with The Denver Foundation and The Piton Foundation, is hosting a new program called Neighborhoood Vital Signs Learning Exchange. Neighborhood Vital Signs helps neighborhoods develop a shared vision, work collaboratively to acheive it, and measure their progress along the way. This project is at the heart of The Civic Canopy's mission - strengthening community through authentic dialogue, rich collaboration and resolute accountability.
Here's what you need to know:
NEIGHBORHOOD VITAL SIGNS
Building Inclusive, Effective and Connected Neighborhoods
· Tired of trying the same things year after year in your neighborhood but not seeing results?
· Are you interested in helping your neighborhood develop a shared vision and clear goals?
· Would you like to know if your neighborhood efforts are having a positive impact?
· Would you like your neighborhood to be more connected and engaged?
