Tell us about your experience with the Collaborative Action Team process:
The Jasper Community Team's Collaborative Approach
Collaborative Action Teams (CATs) are made up of people who care about the Jasper community. People around the table include: representatives from agencies that serve a particular population as well as members of the community who wish to take part in the collaborative process and share insight. Each CAT comes together regularly for a conversation where members identify issues and trends and then work together to take action in anticipation of and/or in response to anything affecting that age group. Sessions are facilitated and a CAT Conversation Guide ensures that the discussion remains issue and trend focused. Unless otherwise noted, all CAT sessions take place in the upstairs boardroom at Community Outreach Services, 627 Patricia St.
