Make Me a Change Agent

Thursday, June 23, 2016
Hosted by CORE Group's Social and Behavior Change (SBC) Working Group and the Food Security and Nutrition Network's SBC Task Force.

In this webinar, Nicole Weber shared her experiences using the manual: Make Me a Change Agent: A Multisectoral SBC Resource for Community Workers and Field Staff with Care Group Volunteers and staff in the DRC. Jenn Weiss and Mary DeCoster told the story of the making of the manual – a multi-year collaboration of many members of the CORE Group SBC Working Group and the FSN Network SBC Task Force and field staff. Other practitioners were encouraged to plan to share their experiences using the manual as well.

The lessons in Make Me a Change Agent seek to build the skills of community-level workers, such as community development agents, community health workers, and agriculture extension agents, so that they can be more effective behavior change promoters in their communities. The lessons are not sector specific, and are tried and true generic skills, such as communication and storytelling, that can help a development worker in any sector become more effective as an agent of behavior change.
