Building capacity of organizations to raise the voices of community members to influence community health
EHF believes that every community has assets and resources that can be leveraged in transforming the health of its residents.
Community engagement enables a two-way interaction process between you and the communities you serve, so that communities have a role in the planning and decision making.
The workshop overall was great for me. Presenters were very warm, friendly, enthusiastic and well informed.

- Engaging Community
A series of three workshops to help organizations plan and execute successful community engagement efforts. The first of the series, “Approaching Community Engagement” is an introduction to the principles and levels of engagement. This interactive workshop helps participants understand how to use these tools to effectively build community relationships, identify and approach concerns and issues with and through those we want to serve.
The second workshop “Creating a Community Engagement Plan” is dedicated to helping an organization prepare a tailored plan of engagement.
The final workshop “The Community Engagement Check-in” is to determine if the engagement efforts are effective, once they have begun.
- Building Relationships for Community Engagement
This workshop provides organizational leaders with skills and knowledge for building relationships in the community they want to engage. Topics include implicit bias, active listening, appreciative inquiry and tips for having tough conversations.
