Community engagement is not just about creating compelling communications and campaigns, but about collaborative conversations, inviting people to engage with your organization. If you’re doing it right, community engagement excites and unites your community, especially when each method or platform is used to its greatest potential.
Picking up where Intro to Community Engagement left off, Advanced Community Engagement will explore how nonprofits can strategically use leading forms of technology to create a conversational approach, inviting cycles of engagement, interaction, and investment. Course materials will showcase leading strategic engagement models from some of best in the industry, as well as what we can learn from their struggles and successes.

- Identify passive vs. active collaborative engagement efforts and learn to turn passive content into active communications.
