Mapping Community Resources at the Community of Practice

Posted on: May 8th, 2012 by admin No Comments

On May 4, 2012, John Oyler showed us a quick and highly participatory process for mapping community resources in the public, private, voluntary, and informal sectors. There are two parts to the process: the “Community Resources Inventory” and the “Circles of Involvement.”

This tool can be used with any community initiative. We used it in a fun and timely simulation (Get Out The Vote!) to demonstrate the process.

This tool has been used successfully with the community impact events of AARP across the nation; with community teams connected to the Innovation Center for Community and Youth Development; within communities in the Arizona Communities for All Ages initiative; by member agencies of the National Network for Youth; as well as international relief work in Haiti and Afghanistan.

Here are two handouts and the photos from the event on Friday. In addition there are a couple of photos from the international events.
