Using Asset-mapping to Understand & Develop Your Community

mapsCommunity asset-mapping is a process by which organizations or networks identify and make contact with other organizations, businesses, and institutions that offer any kind of program, service, or learning opportunity in the community. Information collected about each organization makes up the “asset map,” which is a living and changing document, just as each community itself is a living and changing organism. Not only can asset-mapping help you identify key community resources, but it also can help you achieve broad community participation and community-driven collaboration, project development, and problem solving. This webinar will introduce participants to the basics of asset-mapping, including:

  • Advantages of asset-mapping
  • Stages/Steps in asset-mapping
  • Creatively engaging community partners
  • Identifying opportunities for networking and support
