The Community Change Learning Exchange (CCLE) aims to provide a means to unlock and share lessons learned, what works, what doesn’t and what still remains to be learned, as well as to create a safe space for funders to discuss not only past, but current challenges they are experiencing in community change work. This years CCLE will take place in Montgomery, Alabama.
What are the desired outcomes?
We hope that learning, sharing and challenging one another through authentic “safe space” conversations on our respective work in place-based community change enables us to:
- Capture, cull and disseminate the best practice lessons to the field of place-based community change
- Glean learning opportunities from others in the field for the purpose of informing one’s own place-based community change work
- Advance funder thinking and action to the importance and value of community change work in your own places.
- Advance funder thinking around race and equity and how it connects to community change work in your own places.
The CCLE is intended to serve as a safe space for dialogue among funders that will allow them to discuss – openly – opportunities, challenges and perspectives in community change work.
