Community Building Workshop 

 for Facilitators & Mediators  

“My Community Building experience has become one of

of the most memorable moments in my life.”

- Shyrida Townsend, Manager, Transform Milwaukee Job Program

The Zeidler Center is hosting a Community Building Workshop for all local agencies, students and professionals who work in facilitation, mediation, reconciliation, peacemaking circles, restorative justice, and other group processes! As the need for our services grows and expands, this is an opportunity to build a supportive and abundant community among local facilitators, honoring the many different ways we hold the space! 


Guided by specially trained facilitators from the Community Building Institute, this highly experiential process is an adventure in human interaction, which exposes participants to the principles of Community in an intensely personal way. Participants communicate in a richer and more authentic way than they are likely to have experienced in the past. Community Building Workshops are also compatible with numerous evidence-based practices. Experts have described Community Building as “Trauma Informed Care in action,” the “missing link in Motivational Interviewing,” and “Restorative Justice on steroids.” Community Building Workshops can also be viewed as a type of group contemplative or mindfulness experience. Others simply call it “transformative” and “life-changing.”

Time: Friday night from 5:00pm-9:00pm (includes meal), then 8:30am-4:30pm on Saturday & Sunday (includes meals). Participants must be able to commit to the entire workshop.
