As part of the Community First: Impacts of Community Engagement (CFICE) project, Tara McWhinney, PhD Student and Research Assistant with the Centre for Studies on Poverty and Social Citizenship (CSPSC), has helped develop a Research Toolkit for Community Based Organizations (learn more about the Toolkit).

Developed by the CFICE Tools Working Group, this project development checklist toolkit helps community organizations assess whether they are well suited to a community-campus engagement project and how they can best prepare themselves to start a research project with an academic partner.

In the following video, Tara shares some of the details of this toolkit, which is being developed as a bilingual interactive website tool for release in late November. Stay tuned for our upcoming webinar on the details of this toolkit, which will be happening in early December!
