Active Citizens – Foundations 4 Success Workshop

Date/Deadline: 18 Jun, 2022

Are you passionate and committed to creating positive change in the community?
Do you want to take your ability to contribute to the next level?
Do you seek personal clarity and greater focus for your efforts?

Active Citizens – Foundations 4 Success Workshop is a one-day workshop that is being offered by the City of Parramatta Council to individuals who are committed and active in creating positive change in the community – social, cultural, environmental and economic change for community benefit.

We so often see and hear of people who are passionate about challenges faced by communities and are filled with ideas on how to make the world a better place. They devote every spare hour to making this happen – but then also come to feel they are unable to make headway, have too much to do and face burnout.

If this sounds like you, read on!

This workshop aims to lay strong foundations for your growth as an effective, active citizen in creating positive change. It focuses on you as an individual, clarifying your goals and what you want to achieve in the community, to help you focus your time and energy on actions that matter most to you. A separate series of 1/2 day skill-building workshops will be offered later in 2022, and those who have been accepted into the Foundations one-day workshop will be given priority in attending if interested.

Those interested in participating are required to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) via this page and make a contribution of $55.00 upon acceptance into the workshop. No payment is required at the time of submitting an EOI, but upon confirmation of a ticket in Bookable by Council – you will receive an email if this is the case. Council is subsidising delivery of this workshop but considers the contribution a sign of one’s commitment to attending and their development as an active citizen. Council will consider sponsorship if accepted on a case-by-case basis, depending on individual circumstances.

EOIs will be reviewed by the Community Capacity Building Team at Council as they are submitted, and applicants will be informed of the review outcome within 5 working days. The EOI will ask questions regarding experiences in being an active citizen for creating positive change and motivations for participating.

The workshop is being delivered by the Future Leader Group on behalf of Council.

COVID-19: Council intends for delivery to take place in-person with COVID-Safe protocols in place. If NSW Public Health Orders prevent in-person delivery, it will be switched to online delivery via Zoom. Participants should have the capacity to attend in either format. It will not be delivered in hybrid form (both in-person and online).
