Thanks to the eXtension Communities who have already expressed interest in the first Issue Corps experience specifically for Communities of Practice and Learning Networks. Based on that response, the eXtension Foundation will launch a call for the 2016-17 Community Issue Corps in the coming days.
Like the 2016 i-Three Issue Corps, the Community Issue Corps will be issue-focused but the topics will be based on solving problems identified by the applicants. Proposals will be due the first week of October and the application process will be simple and straightforward.
The Corps experience will consist of a “designathon” event in December along with professional development activities and coaching to support the projects. Contact Ashley Griffin by email or phone (859-608-2726) with any questions.
