About CBI

The Community Building Institute helps communities organize their own redevelopment by tapping into the passion of their residents and identifying the physical assets of their neighborhoods.

The goal is to develop a coordinated plan of improvement that incorporates all the major elements a community needs to really thrive - housing, schools, health care, transportation, jobs and business.

The Community Building Institute presents itself as a partner for communities that are ready to grow into desirable and healthy places to live and work.

Community Leadership Institute

CBI is pleased to support the Annual NeighborWorks Community Leadership Institute, October 23rd – 26th   at the Duke Energy Center.  We have planned several mobile workshops throughout the Greater Cincinnati Area, including Price Hill, Evanston and Clermont County.  We’re also excited to host a workshop on youth engagement at Elementz in downtown Cincinnati.

Community Mediation

 CBI is excited to partner with the Cincinnati Human Relations Commission to host a Transformative Mediation Training led by the Dayton Mediation Center November 6th & 7th at Xavier University.  Fifteen community leaders will spend two days exploring transformative conflict theory, including the concepts of empowerment and recognition. The tools offered through this training are relevant in both the civic engagement setting and in situations that require conflict resolution.
