The Community Action Toolkit Program (CATP) assists community members of various ages, backgrounds, abilities, and interests with the implementation of “do-it-together” community-driven projects. Projects engage diverse members of a community, foster youth action, practice a holistic and sustainable approach to project development, and engender a sense of place. Best practices, tools, and local resources are recommended to create a community action project.
Projects occur in the shared spaces of neighborhoods or schoolyards and in partnership with ITE Community Action Program Leaders and teen Project Specialists.
ITE designed a Community Action Toolkit for Neighborhoods & Schools to support and provide resources for successful projects, and it is available for free download! Please let us know if you download it or use it in any way by dropping us a quick note. We want to know how many folks find it useful and hear any comments you may have!
