The unique and new aspect of this upcoming Transition Training—Larimer, East Liberty, and Homewood and "facilitating the creation of action plans and mutually-supportive relationships that will build resilience in these three neighborhoods"—was previously understated due to outdated descriptions.

Updated info from email on training:
We welcome all who would like to attend this special Training for Transition weekend at the Kingsley Association on Martin Luther King weekend. This training is different than the normal training: we are focused on transitioning the inner-city neighborhoods of Larimer, Homewood and East Liberty. The training has been significantly changed to facilitate the creation of action plans and mutually-supportive relationships that will build resilience in these three neighborhoods.
Thus, we ask that if you are not a resident of one of these neighborhoods that you only come to the training if you are personally willing to give 30 hours of volunteer time by Labor Day, 2012, to support the transitioning of these neighborhoods.
We have four ideas for how you might give your skills and abilities, and participate in the "Transitioning Together" of Larimer, Homewood and/or East Liberty:
a) At the training, help design projects with residents that you want to do together.
b) Mentor one person you meet at the training -- teaching them about things you know, while you also learn from and with them about ways to increase personal and/or community resilience.
c) Offer a skill (such as administrative skills or landscape design, etc.) or other resources (time, money, fundraising party, writing, etc.) to the Kingsley Association and help their staff or the members of a community organization they identify.
d) Propose another idea -- whatever you'd like to offer!
If you cannot or prefer not to volunteer, please contact Kevin May of Transition PGH (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let him know that you would like the usual Training for Transition so that he can keep track of interested parties.
