Coming Soon: COO Learning Community Consultants RFA Release

Communities of Opportunity is building our Learning Community – a platform for current COO partners and aligned organizations to share knowledge and build capacity to accelerate the impact of our work.

Later this month we are releasing a Request for Applications (RFA) for consultants to develop and facilitate key aspects of our Learning Community such as:

  • Planning workshops, clinics, and speaker series
  • Organizing learning circles
  • Developing trainings and coaching sessions.

Consultants will support capacity building in topics such as building strong partnerships, non-profit management, communications, affordable housing, economic opportunity, health, and civic engagement/community connections.
