“One of the things we need to learn is that very great change starts from very small conversations, held among people who care.” - Margaret Wheatley
Community Conversations (Year-Round)
Community Conversations are weekly conversations about a specific age group in Jasper. During these conversations, members of the Jasper Community Team (JCT) share information about social trends and challenges residents are facing. The group then problem solves together to come up with innovative, locally driven solutions to the social challenges that are identified.
