Communities are defined in many different ways by the diverse people who belong to them.  Here at CCE-Tompkins, we work with communities of all kinds and configurations, providing training, resources and facilitation to help individuals, groups and municipalities identify the issues that are most important to them, to envision potential strategies and solutions, and to organize and take action for change.
