Making Community Connections. Module 3 deepens the learning participants acquired in the previous core trainings by advancing the concepts of community beyond the typical surface approach to making community connections. Participants learn and apply methods of Asset-Based Community Development to the drafting of a preliminary transition plan that integrates the development of a positive profile with the identification of potential community roles that are the respected and valued contributions of citizens. Strategies for teaching participants how to identify critical planning partners to expand the network for effective transition services completes this module in the series.
