A NEW APPROACH TO BUILDING COMMUNITY
New Community Builders is an e-course for individuals interested in community building, culture, and collaboration.
In this program, participants learn the fundamentals of community building: from defining purpose and governance to inclusive community design to marketing and engagement strategies and more!
This program is ideal for emerging community builders 15 years old and older, based in North America.
New Community Builders is a hybrid e-course. A blend of self-guided and cohort-based, our team works to create a custom learning pathway for every participant's needs and schedule.
This program includes workshops, guest speaker sessions and independent activities along with opportunities to tap into the wisdom of 2SWIM's extended community of professionals working in fields such as technology, art, community organizing.
FROM OUR STUDENTS

“My favourite part of [the program] was being able to meet new people across North America, I love having deep and daring conversations, especially with other youth.”
“Being a part of this program was the best decision of my summer.”
