Volunteers in Questa Get a Boost from a Community Organizing Workshop

  • Local Champion: Questa Economic Development Fund
  • Date Funded: March 16, 2022
  • Grant Amount: $6,700

There’s a lot of energy and enthusiasm for community work in Questa, New Mexico—both from established nonprofit groups as well as more informal volunteers who are interested in giving back. But there has also been a lack of communication and collaboration about projects between these groups, which has led at times to a duplication of efforts. Staff at Questa’s Economic Development Fund came up with one potential solution for addressing this, though: Host a free, one-day Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD) training workshop to guide sustainable community-driven development. Supported by funding from LOR, the ABCD workshop will bring together community members, volunteers, and organization leaders to work together to develop short- and long-term community models for future community improvement efforts.
