Who I am Use of CTB
I'm a university student seeking to open an organization that informs the marginalized Hispanic population about different health care resources in my local community.
I used the website for a project I was doing in school. We had to write a proposal to a local leader about a problem we wanted to address and I talked about outreach! This website helped me figure out important factors in producing successful outreach strategies. It really helped me write my essay. I plan to use this site for my own future project. Thank you!

Who I am Use of CTB
My name is Dante, I am a community health educator & researcher here in Seattle, WA with Fred Hutch and The Office of Community Outreach & Engagement. I moved here from Raleigh, NC about 2 years ago, and since then I've become really passionate and involved my cancer-health and health disparities work for underserved communities. I love the work that I do and being very community-oriented. I have a 3 year old that keeps me busy and a wife that keeps me on my toes as well! We all support each other! Not much to tell about me. I originally started a career in biology, but came to learn more about public health and community work and decided to pursue my career and get my MPH. Studying the social determinants of health and using community-based participatory research is an important tool for me, I firmly believe that the solutions to many problem can come from working WITH the communities that we serve.
I discovered this resource in an email from my supervisor and the learning modules are fantastic, and it helps me to develop my community approach, as well as the connections that you have, and stories of success that I read about. This is a great tool to use! Would love to connect someday and compare notes! I also learned about a number of programs that are happening to support communities as well through the toolbox!

Who I am Use of CTB
I'm relatively new to my community and started volunteering for a local group that focuses on revitalizing a mostly retail corridor.

We've grown very quickly and there are a lot of passionate neighbors and business owners willing to collaborate to help the main street in our Louisville neighborhood (Bardstown Road in The Highlands) flourish as a vibrant, safe and unique neighborhood and business corridor.

We’re genuinely a community-run organization, which means the wants and needs of the community drive our goals and responses. We work with people from all over the community (neighbors, local businesses, existing community groups, building owners, among others) to better understand Bardstown Road’s unique challenges and desires.
I just learned about this tool thanks to the Center for Neighborhoods' Neighborhood Institute and am finding it really helpful. We linked to it on our resources page and I'm sharing the leadership information with our steering committee. I'm also loving the "take action" guidance to help us get more structure to our approaches and more more efficient and effective.

Who I am Use of CTB
J.D. Arch is a 20 year retired Naval Submariner that is an enrolled member of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians in Cherokee N.C. He has experience in managing, securing and penetrating computer networks. He served two separate instructor tours in Kings Bay Georgia and Yokosuka Japan where he taught how to manage, secure and penetrate computer networks. After retirement, he obtained two undergraduate degrees in business management and public relations to move away from the IT world.

He believes that perspective of life, family and culture guides our steps as we travel through life. His ambition is to form a non-profit that will address the need to change this perspective through culture and community. By learning traditional Cherokee gardening, use of plants, dancing, laughing and communicating with the creator, perspectives will change. Then, opportunities that seemed impossible to attain begin to transform into experiences that lead.

I was originally trained as a conservation ecologist but my passion for people and place has led me to develop into my fuller facilitator, organizer, and advocate self, along with the scientist part of me.
I have drawn on multiple components of the Tool Box to develop research/analysis protocols, develop interview questions, and guide project frameworks. The huge difference the Tool Box has helped me with is doing all of that with a solid foundation and consistent orientation in equitable, respectful community participation. So very grateful!

I will likely adapt some of this for the Government context / perspective, but a lot of what I have read on your website applies beyond community organisations already, so will prove very helpful as I develop my thinking on strategies in general.

Who I am Use of CTB
I’m a VISTA serving with my local Health Department (Erie, PA) to create a food council for our region. It is a really big job. Initially, a VISTA was supposed to support a full-time coordinator, but our funding fell through and it all became my job. In one year, I had to figure out who the stakeholders were, what they were up to, convince them to work together, create a coalition, support the creation of an organization - leadership, mission, by-laws, operating procedures for the council at large and three working groups, and promote the group within my community and to policy makers, all with minimal professional experience to my name.
The Community Toolbox held my hand throughout my whole VISTA year. I encourage all my members to reference it when they aren't sure of their next steps. The part about developing leadership has been especially helpful because I wouldn’t have considered it on my own. Soon I'll exit service, and my members all seem confident and prepared to take on the next steps without me, which is how a VISTA defines success!
