Who can participate?
Everyone. We welcome anyone, from anywhere and of any age including school children.
You may be a current community leader, inspiring leader or have a strong passion for St Arnaud. If you belong to a community organisation or group, you might like to use this training series to help grow your group's purpose, leadership skill, community partnerships and visioning for delivering outcomes for St Arnaud.
Why is this process over multiple sessions rather than one Town Hall session?
The three sessions are training and skill building, combined with vision and aspiration for the community. It takes time and commitment to build participation and leadership skills. We know it’s a big commitment, and in return we promise big outcomes! You won’t regret committing your time to this process.
Why is local government involved in this project?
Local government plays an important role in ensuring strong economic and community development, across social, economic and built environments.
What can we expect over the three workshops?
- An understanding of asset based community development
- Develop partnerships across the community - individuals and groups/organisations
- Leadership and facilitation skills
- Understanding the role of local government
- Opportunities for the future of St Arnaud
- Inspiration for innovation
What’s our long term aim?
For the Northern Grampians Shire to have strong community partnerships to co-design, co-deliver and advocate for a flourishing future for St Arnaud and have a ‘live’ and active community visioning plan for St Arnaud.
Who will facilitate the training sessions?
Michelle and Dee from the Jeder Institute will lead the training sessions. They have been chosen for their strengths based and empathetic approach, community values and proven track record of inspiring community work both in Australia and Internationally.
