Organizing and supporting the Northern Berkshire community for over 33 years!

Community Outreach and Civic Engagement Training at nbCC!

Calling all those committed to strengthening the Northern Berkshires!

It is that time of year where we begin recruiting our next cohort of Community Outreach volunteers. Ideal participants must be committed to strengthening the Northern Berkshires by exploring how you can make a positive impact and learning how to assist residents in accessing available services.

The free training will take place over a 5-month period and meet every Thursday from 5:30pm to 8pm beginning February 14, 2019. As part of the training, participants will learn of the many health and human service providers and community organizations in the northern Berkshire region. In addition, participants will engage in workshops and training on topics such as

  • different styles of leadership
  • effective communication and marketing
  • professional writing
  • community organizing
  • conflict management
  • other related topics

Coupled with the training, participants will create and implement a community service project utilizing the skills and information received during the training that will either meet a community need or build upon an existing asset. Following graduation, Northern Berkshire Neighbors will support participants as they work towards making impactful contributions to their communities and neighborhoods.
