Hosting a Workshop

Innoweave partners with community organizations and networks to host workshops for their communities. Workshop hosts typically help identify and select participants, arrange logistics, and promote the workshop in their community.
Innoweave will provide support and tools to organizations that are interested in hosting a workshop. We can also provide connections to trained facilitators who can deliver the content for a local workshop.
Community Foundations, United Ways and community organizations are currently some of Innoweave’s key partners in hosting workshops.
If you are interested in hosting a workshop for one of the Innoweave modules and would like to learn more, please e-mail
