Community Action Learning Suite


There are three programs in this learning suite. You can complete each separately, but when taken together they provide the majority of what Community Action professionals need to know (beyond the basics of ROMA) for managing their agencies. This suite also provides you with a strong foundation for the focused Community Theory of Change program that will follow in 2022.


The Context of Poverty, Economic Security and Mobility -  November 10, 2021 for virtual live forum plus 3 e-learning courses

The complex ecosystem of poverty, economic security and mobility makes it difficult to create change, or even to understand the factors involved. This deep dive into the fundamentals will help you think critically about your beliefs and your agency’s role within “the system” that clients must navigate, which will become the foundation for your theory of change.
Three asynchronous courses are included that can be completed at your own time:
•Working with the Context of Poverty and Economic Barriers (30 minutes)
•Understanding the Cliff Effect (45 minutes)
•A Holistic Approach to Economic Security and Well-Being (45 minutes)
