Capacity Building and Leadership Development

Creating Whole Communities brings together the training and technical assistance expertise of MU Extension and the University of Missouri–St. Louis to support community development practitioners, leaders, and residents. Creating Whole Communities looks to support organizational capacity building and leadership development through in-person training, written resource guides, and networking with training alumni. CWC’s training is rooted in a core set of community building principles. Work towards a whole community is community-driven, based on community assets, is collaborative across sectors and demonstrates collaborative problem solving, supports the development of civic leadership and strengthens formal and informal community institutions, and develops strategies that are comprehensive in nature and sustainable.
