The annual Community Development Workshop (CDW) is an opportunity to learn with leaders in community development, collaborate with other neighborhood changemakers, and be empowered to transform your community. The 7th Annual CDW will take place on Saturday, March 9, 8:30 am-1:30 pm, at the Kauffman Foundation Conference Center. 

We hope you will join us to hear from inspiring speakers, learn together in interactive breakout sessions, and build your network of community leaders. The CDW offers neighborhood, government and nonprofit leaders, residents, grassroots activists, and other community stakeholders from both Kansas and Missouri, an opportunity to learn and to build new relationships that support community development.

The morning session will feature Youth Speak by Youth Ambassadors, a non-profit, strength-based employment program serving teenagers in the Kansas City metropolitan area, followed by four breakout tracks to choose from. The tracks—Affordable Housing, Community Engagement, Healthy Communities, Neighborhood Safety—will offer a discussion of opportunities and challenges, as well as connections to local resources and available tools.

Registration is now open. The event is free but registration is required. 

CDW is organized by Community Capital Fund, Center for Neighborhoods, Greater Kansas City LISC, and Livable Neighborhoods.
