COALITION WORKSHOPS

Coalition leadership is challenging when volunteers and staff lose interest or become less engaged. Passionate leaders need skills to authentically engage with community members in a meaningful way. HueLife offers courses that are by coalition leaders for coalition leaders, grounded in participatory engagement to help bridge the engagement gap. These courses provide tools to engage in conversations that drive people to action, build consensus where all voices are heard, and develop practical, effective plans.
