About this grant
This grant will support the National Community Education Association in its efforts to reenergize the community education field by undergoing a comprehensive organizational strategic planning process. This will enable the association to rebuild itself as a strong, flexible organization committed to embedding the historical values of the community education field into a 21st Century society, while addressing the needs of a changing economic and social environment. This effort will require a reexamination of the mission, vision and goals of the organization, as well as a concrete exploration of how new efforts will result in the vibrancy and growth of the community education field. During the strategic planning process, a new executive director, interim manager, and training director also will be hired.
