How can you put theory into practice in your project? Through this course, you’ll implement your community project using the strategy and Theory of Change you have already developed. You’ll create a project timeline, explore planning frameworks, and collaborate with other learners to elicit and offer feedback. To refine your plan, you’ll also consider tools like journey mapping that help you anticipate how others will interact with your project. You’ll also benefit from the support of one another as you create meaningful impact through your projects.
This course is reserved for students enrolled in the certificate program.
Currently not available for registration.

How you will learn and be evaluated
- Classes will include exercises, discussions, reflections and guest facilitators.
- In both class content and format, we aim to decolonize our approaches to community learning, by breaking down the systems we are challenging, and by building true relationships as the core of everything we do.
- We will share resources for you to read, listen to, and explore. We will let you know whether a resource is required/recommended, or for enrichment or deeper learning.
- In our learning community, you will also have the opportunity to share resources with one another. Wherever possible, we will provide options for accessing each text, share tools for accessibility, and build in time to discuss what we’ve learned in the resources.
- The Community Capacity Building Certificate is a Pass or Fail curriculum. Passing the program and receiving the certificate is determined based on attendance, participation, and the presentation on your community project.
We will provide all course materials online.
For online courses, you will need a computer with audio and microphone that is connected to the internet. Canvas is the online system that will be used for the course. For more information and online support, visit Online Learning.
