The legacy of a KaBOOM! playground build is visible and tangible: in one day, volunteers build a healthy play space for kids and families to enjoy for years to come. What’s lesser known is that the projects also help develop a community’s long-lasting capacity to transform their neighborhoods, as a Knight Foundation independent evaluation recently found.

Join KaBOOM! and the Knight Foundation to learn more about how a build helps residents and partner organizations gain the leadership and organizational skills they need to solve other commuity problems, and the confidence that community activism is an effective vehicle for change. At the heart of the process is the belief that a short-term, intensive, structured effort – such as a playground build – inspires individuals to take on other pressing issues and can yield effects that increase community change.

Once you register for the webinar you will automatically be redirected to a link for the executive summary of the evaluation.

Our speakers will be Mayur Patel, Vice Presdident for Strategies and Assessment at Knight, Damian Thorman, National Program Director at Knight, and Kate Becker, Vice President for Program Management at KaBOOM!

Chris Gates, the Executive Director of PACE, will moderate the conversation. Philanthropy for Active Civic Engagement, is an affinity group of the Council on Foundations and serves as a learning collaborative for funders doing work in the fields of civic engagement, service and democratic practice.
