North Carolina Community Asset Map

For two years, service-learning students have been working on a guidebook for Spanish-speakers who are recent arrivals to five North Carolina counties.  The project started as a collaboration with GoodWork, a community development organization in Raleigh, NC focused on entrepreneurship and sustainability.

In the fall 2010, students in the First Year Seminar "Spanish & Entrepreneurship" put all the work online.

They used Google maps and asset mapping to create the beautiful website North Carolina Community Asset Guidebooks.

Please spread the word so agencies and organizations that work with Latinos can use the site:

  1. Asset mapping provides information about the strengths and resources of a community and can help uncover solutions. Community asset maps take many forms, from simple lists that fit on a single piece of paper to extensive reports and geographic maps. You can create all forms of community maps with Creately Asset Mapping Tool .
