Community power training set to begin April 22
Greenville County is one of five winners of the 2019 RWJF Culture of Health Prize awarded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The prize honors and elevates communities for working at the forefront of advancing health, opportunity, and equity. Greenville County is being nationally recognized for pursuing innovative ideas and bringing partners together to rally around a shared vision of health.
This spring, LiveWell Greenville, Jolley Foundation, Piedmont Health Foundation and Sharp Brain Consulting are partnering to host a celebration and community power building training event series.
Recognizing that community power building is an essential ingredient to establishing and maintaining a culture of health for all residents, the group is offering the free Zoom series for all community members, non-profit leaders and others interested in learning how to advocate for and create change in their neighborhoods.
Events will be on April 22 (Celebrate Community Power), May 6 (Mobilize Community Power) and May 20 (Sustain Community Power) from 5:30-7:00 p.m.
Power is the voice, ownership, and ability of a neighborhood to say what it wants and to work together to drive the change they seek. Community power building is an essential ingredient to establishing and maintaining a culture of health for all residents.
