Social Change mentor comes to Forster in July
Is there a social issue in your community you’d like to address? Are you tired of talk and ready for action? Do you know how to gather enough money, support and energy to make social change happen?
Join social entrepreneur and regional community strategist, Kerry Grace in Forster on 21 July for a workshop called Kickstart My Community and learn how to accelerate social change in your community.
“Every community has issues that it would like to address. Creating social change doesn’t have to be difficult nor does it always need a big grant to get started. Sustainable social change happens when we give focus to what is working, draw together resources and determine a positive pathway for the future.”
Kerry Grace, Director of Evolve Network

Kickstart My Community has been designed for anyone that cares about their community and is ready for action.

Lynda Hepple, Community Development Coordinator of MidCoast Council says;

“MidCoast Council is keen to see local organisations and groups develop skills that will enable them to become more effective. Effective organisations are more able to form successful partnerships with each other and with Council, to create sustainable change.”

Kickstart My Community is an informative and interactive workshop that focuses on troubleshooting the key issues participants are having in creating social change, rather than delivering from a rigid program. Evolve Network calls this just in time learning.
Workshop participants will discuss and explore topics including; identifying community needs and what really matters, creating dynamic community partnerships, addressing funding needs, moving into action and self-leadership.
Workshop participants can expect to leave with a plan of action as they prepare to address social change in their community.
