This is new news!Leading Conversations That Build Community Workshop (Homer)
group of people with arms around each other on mountain top watching sunsetLeading Conversations That Build Community is a 2-day skill-building workshop to learn how to have better conversations across our differences and build a stronger community. This workshop will be held 8:30am-5pm on January 27 and January 28 at the Kachemak Bay Campus.

The workshop is led by the Alaska Humanities Forum, sponsored by the Homer Foundation, and organized by Guiding Growth--an ad hoc group of citizens whose mission is to create a tool box for guiding growth in our community. Through civic discourse, good conversation, and relevant resources, the group’s purpose is to empower participation in the vision of how the Homer community develops. The Homer-area has become polarized and divided over issues that impact all of us. However, if there is one thing we have in common, it's that we share our lives here and hope for the best for our friends and families.
