A Report from the Connecting Communities Learning Exchange
What is special about resident-centered community building? Why is there such importance on relationship-building? Resident Centered Community-Building—What Makes it Different? A Report from the Connecting Communities Learning Exchange distills lessons and recommendations from resident activists and locally embedded change agents on how to engage communities in activism and change. Based on discussions at the 2012 Learning Exchange, co-hosted by the Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation and the Roundtable, the report features strategies for putting residents at the center of neighborhood-based community building. The report can be found on under Roundtable publications and in print by special request.
