Community-Based Project Planning

In the second course of the Certificate in Community Capacity Building, you will practice the skills you’ve been learning in the first course, Foundational Skills for Project Planning, and apply them as you make a detailed and realistic project plan. You will use this plan for your community project. 

What will I learn?

 You will explore these topics:

  •  Community needs and visions
  • Action planning
  • Planning how to evaluate and document your project
  • Project budgeting
  • Project proposal writing

How will I learn?

  • Online instruction
  • Workshops
  • Case studies
  • Projects
  • Weekly reading and/or assignments
  • Group presentations

Who should take this course?

This course is for cohorts in rural Aboriginal communities who are interested in strengthening the skills they need to build leadership and capacities in their communities.

How will I be evaluated?

Evaluation is based on your active participation, attendance, and your personal learning journal, which you will work on throughout the certificate program. You will receive regular feedback from your instructor and community-based mentors.  At four points in the certificate program, both you and your instructor will complete a simple questionnaire about your learning process, participation, and contributions to the program.
