Resources for Empowerment: A Grassroot Organization Learning and Network Event

In May 2024, Volunteer Alberta & Community Development Learning Initiative (CDLI) partnered to host an event to highlight resources available to grassroots organizations and community-led initiatives in Calgary. In keeping with community development principles and knowing each person/team offering the resources also has knowledge and expertise, this was a way to introduce not only what organizations formally offer but also suggest ideas on topics you might reach out for (perhaps over a warm beverage) to help build relationships. Much like how you have your own social capital and skills to offer, each of these teams have some hidden gems they are excited to chat about as well! Resources highlighted were: Calgary Foundation – Grassroots Granting, The GAIN Team, United Way of Calgary And Area – Grassroots Grants & Digital Equity, Volunteer Alberta, and CDLI.
