July 14, 2008
The Wyoming Rural Development Council will hold a team member training workshop in August for individuals interested in helping shape the future of rural Wyoming.
Interested persons will be trained to become active participants in the Community Assessment Program, which assists communities in developing locally-conceived and driven development strategies, and helps provide a long-term support system for communities to achieve their development goals.
The workshop will take place on Thursday, Aug. 14, from 9:30 a.m. – 3 p.m. at Little America in Cheyenne, 2800 West Lincolnway.
The training is free and includes lunch, breaks, and all training materials. The deadline for registering is July 31, 2008.
Participants will learn how to conduct a community assessment that identifies assets, problems and challenges, and defines issues and projects a community would like to achieve.
Common topics of community assessments include economic development, infrastructure, health and social services, housing needs, volunteerism, and youth activities, among others.
