Introduction to PB Training

New to running PB? Our Introduction to PB Training provides a solid foundation in the principles and mechanics of PB by taking participants through a full PB process. Hear case studies, develop practical skills for facilitating PB, and gain insights into challenges and ways to overcome them. Leave with concrete strategies for moving PB forward in your community.


Advanced PB Training

Looking to take the PB process you're already run to the next level? Our Advanced PB Training is a space to learn best practices, gather new tools, and discuss innovations with a community of fellow PB practitioners. Strengthen skills and troubleshoot together through demonstrations. Strategize about how to improve the impact and integrate equity considerations into your local PB process.

If you can't make it to either of these trainings, sign up for email alerts and we’ll let you know as soon we add more trainings to the calendar!

Thank you for working with us to rebuild our civic infrastructure!
