Community Engagement - WV Community Development Hub
At the West Virginia Community Development Hub, we believe every community has the tools to develop economic opportunities and jobs; optimal health conditions; attractive and inspiring community environments; bright futures for young people, and citizens who believe they deserve these things and are prepared to work together to get them. Through our community engagement programs, communities will be building their capacity around specific leadership skills, teamwork success, community engagement techniques, facilitation skills, communications and marketing, business outreach and training materials, knowledge of service providers and funding resources, and grant writing abilities. Cultivate WV helps two communities create sustainable community engagement structures and develop community leadership skills. Through the program, the Hub offers community coaching, workshops and trainings focused on community engagement, communications, building redevelopment, small business development and funding for small and large-scale projects. Through Blueprint Communities, participating communities work over a 5-year period (intensive the first 2 years) to develop a plan that moves forward a transformational project in their community that takes into account physical, economic, and social needs. Objectives of the program include defining vision, planning and strategy implementation, while fostering strong community collaboration and leadership in rural West Virginia communities.
