Instructors: Darryl Lester, Service Year NC Director, Institute for Emerging Issues; John Parker, Rural Faith Communities, Institute for Emerging Issues

This workshop encourages personal and professional reflection around who we are and where we’ve been as a process to determine “where we want to go”.  Utilizing a variety of tools, including the Tree of Life and 10 Lens exercise, we’ll examine how we serve in the civic sphere, as a paid professional and as a community volunteer (ie: board work, faith community involvement, etc.) along with unpacking some issues of Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity.  Ideally, we’ll identify goals for future learning in our personal and professional lives through civic conversations as well as intentional engagement and reflection.

IEI’s Summer School Series will offer a number of online discussions, training, and workshops that will help communities work better together to identify challenges, problem-solve, and connect to resources. This four-part capacity building series will engage participants in virtual learning and sharing on the following topics: Civic Engagement, Storytelling, Adaptive Leadership, and Collective Impact.

(Please note: You do not have to register for all four parts of the series. Participants may register for our 4-part Summer School or individual sessions.)
