Kauffman Foundation Conference Center

The Community Development Workshop offers neighborhood, government, and nonprofit leaders, residents, grassroots activists, and other community stakeholders from both KS and MO, a free opportunity to learn, collaborate, and build new relationships that support community development.

This year, the workshop offered attendees four breakout tracks to choose from. The tracks—We Want Housing and Development, We Want a Healthier Environment, We Want a Safer Community, and We Want to Build a Local Economy—included discussions of opportunities and challenges, as well as connections to local resources, and available community development tools.

Community Development Workshop Extensions: This year we are excited to introduce Community Development Workshop Extensions—an opportunity to continue the community development conversation before and after the annual workshop. Stay tuned for more details on the sessions below.
