New Online Community Building Series (FREE for the Public)
To meet the critical need for community in a time when physical distancing is required, CBI is offering several series for local residents of Milwaukee and Knoxville, Community Building Workshop Alumni, and Facilitators.    

Public Circles of Connection Times 
Join us for two public Circle Times where you can practice some of the guidelines you learned, receive support, and connect with others in a shared space. No previous Community Building Experience necessary. 

If you’d be interested in future FREE Public Offerings, please email admin@communitybuilding.com as we will host more sessions like 8 Tips to Survive and Thrive When Home with Family, sessions on using Community Building in the workplace, and more Circles of Connection.

New Online Offerings for CBI Facilitators:
Starting in May, the 1st Thursday of each month will be an online Circle of Connection and the 3rd Thursday will be a training on a special topic and “Peace Stories” from the field.

If you are not currently a Facilitator for CBI, but are interested in becoming one, please contact admin@communitybuilding.com and we’ll be sure to send you information about our upcoming Facilitator Trainings.
