Originally presented in two parts, this workshop is designed to help increase the organizational capacity of agencies
serving culturally specific and underserved communities. As we rarely get time to talk about our organizations, the workshop considers how our organizations can be healthier. Participants get a big picture of what sustainability means and includes. The focus is not on the subject matter of our work, but instead on ways to adapt models in a way that align with our values, culture and what we want to accomplish. 
This training is particularly useful for staff that may be new to their organizations or the field, or those wanting a fresh look at their mission, vision and core values statements.
