Park Place Church of God welcomes Dr. Al Condeluci Saturday, November 9, 2019 from 9am - 12pm for a Social Capital and Community Building training. "Social Capital is a term that summarizes the value (tangible and intangible) of relationship in our lives...many people with disabilities are limited in social capital and remain isolated..." (Social Capital: The Key to Macro Change). For the past 40 years, researchers have been exploring the power and potency of social capital. This interactive training looks closely at research on social capital and identifies ways and means to building more viable relationships in our lives.
If you are an educator, human services professional, church ministry, family member related to a person with disabilities, this training will provide education and tools for moving forward together. This is an opportunity to discover strategies and actions to cultivate stronger community and connectedness through inclusivity, identifying passions, matching interests, and evaluation.
