Building Communities From the Inside Out: A Path Toward Finding and Mobilizing a Community’s Assets
This publication by the Institute for Policy Research at Northwestern University, builds on the work of McKnight and others stressing informal, community-based supports and affiliations to build inclusive communities. The book discusses how communities can rediscover and ”map” all of their local assets; how to build on these rediscovered assets to become more self-reliant and empowered neighborhoods and communities; and how ”outsiders” (professionals, government officials, and representatives from the philanthropic sector) can contribute to this process. Includes a section on how schools - as important local institutions - can contribute to the community building.
