in Action is
a five-session leadership & learning boot camp developed to strengthen
grassroots groups. Groups working in NIA will learn conflict resolution,
meeting facilitation, community organizing and project planning.
NBN’s working groups are where learning and organizing collide! Working groups are resident-led learning circles where groups discuss, discover, and learn more about topics of interest to the community and their impact.
Groups who complete a working group session have the knowledge and understanding to develop individual and/or collective action plans to take action in their community.
Examples of working groups at NBN:
To facilitate a working group
Working group sessions can range from 3-6 months and meet on a
schedule agreed upon by the group participants. Working groups are resident-led
learning spaces and anyone can start a group based on their interest.
In order to host a group, NBN requires leaders to attend our Facilitator Training workshop offered bi-monthly at our offices located at 502 N. Broad Street.
NBN provides support for working groups by providing meeting space, marketing of the group, coaching for facilitators, and childcare services as available.
