I am a PhD student at Concordia Seminary in St.Louis. I am from India and was working among the group called Dalits previously know as untouchables. I recently found this tool and it is really awesome. I feel it really showed me how to work for the community in an organized and systematic way.I am looking forward to use it in my community setting.
The Dalit community's biggest challenges are poverty, malnutrition and excessive drinking habit. So I am planning to share it with my colleagues back in India and use it to help the community.

Who I am Use of CTB
I am a late bloomer. I sent myself back to school at 54 to put a name on what I've learned in my nursing career. I work with non-federally recognized Native American people who are interspersed in a variety of community settings. Starting at point A was a transition of learning and developing relationships. It has been a non-linear experience.
The information the site offers is deeply appreciated. Very concise and condensed library of material that I know I've probably crossed in the past several years. Now, hoping to graduate with a DNP in Transcultural nursing, I've found myself referring to cultural competence section to see how I've done. If I did the right things and can enjoy integrity in what we've accomplished so far. Although the outlines and chapters are quite linear, it's good that its an "open book" (laughing) or else, I started off with the wrong foot. The tool box provides a system of checks, balances and next thoughts when I need that extra boost.

To gain more skills and practice what I am learning, I am volunteering to our community via the Barefoot Programme which supports primary educators with the confidence, knowledge, skills and resources to teach computer science. My role is to deliver in-school CPD Workshop to the teachers.

And so, Chapter 12 of this Community Tool Box is giving me helpful ideas on how to plan, design and deliver trainings and workshops.

I will also endeavour other tools for my personal CPD which will also be useful in serving my community.

Currently I am entitled as an agile coach, but I still have a tons of things to learn and decades to experience to be really who i am currently.
Currently I am creating a unique scrum master survey. The surveys unique because each question only has good answers. those are ranked however so there is good,better, even better, even more better, almost the best and probably best types. This will help the applicant to receive instant 4 other good options to be try out at her scrum teams. The goal is to improve and coach online via a survey tons of people to build better teams. For the SM patterns it is a great help to read the servant leader chapter.
I am pretty sure that I will come back for some other stuff later.

I have just starting browsing Chapter 27 and it is full of ideas that could help me as I write grants to fund my community painting projects. I can see that the Community Tool Box is something that I will refer to often as a guide. I will also check out some of the books and articles in the bibliography for more in depth discussion.

I am currently leading some peace work within our church.
We are considering adopting a Just Peace designation within our denomination--UCC.
We're hoping to become a valued, relevant peace resource and model for peaceful dialogue and engagement. Part of the work we're hoping to do is local peace and justice work--addressing needs within our community that frequently get overlooked for bigger, headline issues.
I ran across your amazing web site when I was surfing around surveying some other community activist sites. Yours appears to be very practical, and accessible. Your tool box might be a big help.
So far, we're not using it. I'm just getting acquainted and started.
Thanks!

I am not a community organizer by profession. But I am very interested in forming units within my community to help support folks and help us all to lift one another up. I live in a relatively small city in the United States. So I realize that we are well off compared to others around the globe, but we have a lot of internalized oppression. I'd like to help us get rid of that so that we can take full control of our community.
I haven't read anything as yet, but I will read it and share it with others in the community. I expect that it will be useful in my work with my local church.

Q: Why is a needs assessment an important step in community intervention? Discuss some of the different methods that can be used to complete a needs assessment. Choose one of the examples listed under the Examples tab and summarize the information that was assessed from two community assessments. How did the two assessments you read about compare (discuss similarities and differences)?
