Institute Establishes First Community Organization Partnership


We are pleased to announce our first community organization partnership with Salt And Light Leadership Training (SALLT) of Oklahoma City. SALLT is a faith-based community organization whose mission is to “Serve Christian leaders from the public, private and social sectors by helping them leverage their passion, skills and influence for the common good of the city.”
 
The Institute is collaborating with SALLT on a metro-Oklahoma City-based community project called 'How Are the Children?'. United around our common goal of improving the flourishing of children in Oklahoma City, we are collaborating with Thriving Cities, an initiative of the Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture at the University of Virginia, to work with SALLT in bringing meaningful, positive change for the children of Oklahoma City. Thriving Cities is guiding the community work of SALLT members by leading them through a season of discernment and discovery to match the passion of calling to actual capacity, relational propriety, and demonstrated need.
 
On December 6-7, 2016, the Institute will host a summit to bring together Thriving Cities staff with SALLT members and key city and state leaders. Together we will develop a framework that will structure and assess ongoing community work to improve children's lives.
