Community Building 2014
20 Feb, 2014
Welcome! Soon, you will participate in a Community Building experience facilitated by certified leaders from the MEC (le Mouvement vers l’Esprit Communautaire). This brochure will help prepare you for this experience and give a brief introduction to Community Building.
It is very important that you read this material before the experience.
At a Community Building Workshop (CBW), the group’s goal is to form a true community. A community is best defined as a group of people who, regardless of the diversity of their backgrounds, have been able to accept and transcend their differences, enabling them to communicate effectively and openly and to work together toward goals identified as being for their common good.
The process of reaching community is an adventure. It is normal to be uncertain or scared at the outset, but we learn through adventure. Therefore, Community Building uses an experiential learning process, believing it is more profound and more rewarding.
