The Boot Camp Training Model for Maturing Your Field

Foundations, associations and “hub n’ spoke” organizations that support a community of smaller affiliated offices, independent chapters, or even volunteer groups face a shared challenge: how to mature the whole field? The organizations under their umbrella are often out of step with critical new technology, new best practices and organizational thinking and often out of step with each other.Community building orgs are looking to create programs to teach affiliate’s new skills and build shared capacity, but what is a model that works?

This webinar will outline our “Boot Camp” model for capacity building for any organizations that provide training, coaching and incentives to help their grantees/affiliates advance their fields. We’ll highlight the Boot Camp approach and focus on top tips for how to use gamification and incentives to get otherwise reluctant affiliates/umbrella orgs to learn and apply new thinking and technologies.

We will cover:
What the Boot Camp community capacity building model is and how it applies to your field.

A breakdown of the barriers that “umbrella” orgs face in capacity building.

Examples of effective incentive-based programs that get results with case studies from the field.

Smart tactics to create connections between your affiliates and keep them engaged with (and learning from) each other.

-A breakdown of the Boot Camp model and how it can be applied to any org/community
-How your org can create a Boot Camp that gets participants to learn AND do
