FBC 603- Learning in Marginalized Communities (U.S.)

Communities are always in transition. But who owns that transition: local people or outsiders? SEED-SCALE offers a framework for engaging the transition in a way that builds the capacity of the community. While the relevance is universal, the context of the learning will be in Washington, D.C. and in rural communities of West Virginia. Participants will experience the rich history and excitement of Washington, D.C., while also getting to explore the beautiful mountains of West Virginia. While these two locations seem worlds apart, in reality, they both struggle to create a just living environment for diverse populations. This course will teach you how to address both.
