Stay tuned below for a recap!
What is ABCD?
ABCD stands for Asset Based Community Development.
ABCD, simply put, is an approach focused on community building and development.
This approach is centered around the people within the community. The idea here is that the people make the community.
Each person has their own set of strengths and passions. These strengths and passions are called their gifts. Your gift can be difficult to recognize: but we all have one!
Not sure what your gift is?
Tip: If you had to teach one person, or a group of people something, what would it be? Why?
Connecting these gifts to other people, groups and organizations is the main part of this process. This step supports the development of the community.
