Stretching Into Resident Ownership

Are you curious about ways to increase community ownership of an effort you are involved in? Perhaps looking for ways to bring in new folks, share the work and help ensure it lasts into the future? If so, join us as we explore resident ownership which focuses on considering who is most impacted by your work and engaging them as key drivers and decision-makers. This involves diversifying your core group, letting go of and shifting some control, and experiencing the success and beauty of resident-led work. Learn about concepts, strategies, and examples related to resident ownership of community (or organizational) efforts and then play with your learning edge to discover where you might be able to apply some of these ideas to your work back home.
