Coalition Building and Community Organizing
Broadly defined, a coalition is an alliance for combined action working towards the same goal. Coalitions can be formal or informal, can be focused on a big mission goal or a smaller, specific policy or programmatic goal, and can be called by many different names: collaborative, partnership, alliance, and so on. Regardless of the name, we know that the work coalitions do is vital not only to their community but to public health improvement overall. The Community Health Training Institute exists to build the capacity of community coalitions, and these trainings are just a sample of all that we offer. We are happy to tailor these trainings to suit your needs.
Building Effective and Sustainable Coalitions
Learn the keys to coalition development and sustaining momentum through this half-day training, where local coalition leaders will present on-the-ground challenges and practical solutions related to facilitation and communications.. Participants will:
- Learn about activities, processes, and structures that build and sustain effective coalitions.
- Discover tips for running effective meetings, communicating, managing conflict, and recruiting and sustaining engaged participants.
Effectively Engaging Multi-Sector Partners
The most effective community health collaborations and coalitions are built upon a common agenda shared by diverse sectors (e.g., healthcare, planning, housing, transportation, business, and other non-traditional partners). This webinar will present an overview of the various levels of engagement and specific strategies to engage partners at each level.
