Hello,

I am working on figuring out how to integrate my organization's grassroots community organizing work with it's tendency to chase social movements that spur. I am not sure how to balance mass mobilization with long-term engagement in a way that achieves outcomes for both approaches and dignifies the long-time activist who maintain our volunteer leadership structures. Would love any advice you may have.
Thanks,

Hello,

I'm conducting some research for Building Resilient Neighbourhoods. BRN (http://resilientneighbourhoods.ca/) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to building resilient neighbourhoods in Victoria BC. We are conducting an update and revision of our Resilient Streets Toolkit (http://resilientneighbourhoods.ca/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/RN_Toolkit_15_02_web.pdf ). The Toolkit includes “Inspiring Examples” from Canada and around the world of small groups of immediate neighbours collaborating in projects and activities on their street or in their buildings to help build resilience in their lives, homes, streets and neighbourhoods.

We’re having difficulty finding examples of things that neighbours can do to make sure that their block or building is friendly and inclusive for people of different cultures and races, people who have a disability, or who identify as part of the LGBTQ community. I’ve taken a look through your website and see that you have some incredible resources about how to build inclusive communities. I’m wondering if you know any initiatives undertaken by neighbours to create inclusivity at the street level. What we’re after here are examples that feel attainable for individuals working with a small group of their immediate neighbours. We’re especially looking for examples that include how-to guides, or that give a step-by-step explanation of how an initiative took shape. Examples might be reading groups, discussion groups, building parties to create accessible infrastructure, inclusive neighbourhood dinners or potlucks, instances where members or advocates of a minority group reached out to their neighbours to educate and/or connect with them, or anything else you think might qualify.

Anything you could offer would be greatly appreciated, including contacts for other organizations you think might be helpful.

Thank you so much!

Hello,
I am a new employee at a NGO, as the Project Coordinator. My organization provides humanitarian services to underprivileged persons in Southeast Asia.

I was employed to bring operations to a higher standard, as we lack the proper tools and systems in project design and implementation. Most processes are carried out informally.

I am asked to create a Needs Assessment for the literacy teachers to use when they go out in the community to assess needs. I am having difficulty formulating the exact questions that are appropriate. Any advise on this? Also, I was requested to create an evaluation system for the various projects, such as the schools or the Water Wells built. Could you give some guidance on how to create this evaluation system and possible questions to be included in the evaluation?

Thank you.

I am interested in starting a community center for both parents and kids alike. To help build them and their futures and aiding less experienced single parents in raising their children who like help. I would be looking to reach out to those kids who are troubled or needing help with any aspect of their life and future. Would I need to have some form of certification or degree to start this and what are some tools or resources that can point me in the right direction to start?
