Updates on CCR training events, teaching experiences, and education on civic engagement techniques

CCR continues to build young leaders, teaches two UC DAAP planning classes

Young leaders are critical to our future, and CCR is doing its part to teach a new model of community leadership based on the facilitation of collective insight rather than promotion of political answers.
In January, CCR taught two Department of Planning classes at UC.  The first focused on the principles and techniques of community-based leadership facilitation.  The second discussed the role of citizens in setting municipal budgets.  The students (long with Prof. Marisa Zapata and Prof. Beth Honadle) all found the material essential learning for anyone wanting citizens to take the lead in transforming our collective future.
If you would like CCR to help you or other leaders learn these or other leadership skills, please contact CCR director Jeffrey Stec at
