Take an On The Ground Learning Journey

On The Ground participants will experience a unique resident-led learning journey of two different neighborhoods at our anti-conference. The learning journeys are unique to Grassroots Grantmakers and will:

  • Explore multiple community investment topics.
  • Reflect on traditional community improvement strategies.
  • Imagine bold new ways of involving, developing and empowering residents to enhance communities. 

Each learning journey of our two neighborhoods will explore an aspect of community development, such as:

  • Building social capital.
  • Leveraging financial capital.
  • Launching small businesses through social entrepreneurship.
  • Identifying human assets and deploying resident gifts and talents.
  • Rebuilding and redesigning communities that suffered from decades of disinvestment and demographic change.
  • Exploring the role of youth engagement and empowerment strategies, addressing social justice issues that contribute to disconnection and marginalization.
