What is asset mapping?
Everyone has something positive to contribute to the world and many of the resources needed to create a healthy, vibrant community already exist within the community around us. One approach for learning about a community is Asset Mapping-an inventory of the gifts, talents and resources within a neighborhood. This approach provides information about the strengths and resources of an area, creates awareness, and can help you utilize those assets. Once community strengths and resources are identified and inventoried, you can also more easily think about how to improve community needs and health.
What would the time commitment be?
Throughout the summer, we will be going out 4-5 times to door knock the neighborhood and start to gather and inventory assets. Currently, our dates are: 7/1, 7/15, 8/5, and 8/19 for about 3-4 hours in the morning. We would love for you to participate in door knocking in any capacity! This means that you could do one time, or even all four. Let me know if you have any questions.
Know of any neighbors that may want to help out? Let them know!
Snacks and refreshment, as well as training, will be provided at each event.
I have attached a doodle survey with dates. If you could fill it out with your name in the time slot you would like to volunteer in that would be wonderful! https://doodle.com/poll/7ga9fmfenvw8xgh8
