We're in a fight to make community a common enterprise.

The Harwood Institute teaches, coaches and inspires individuals and organizations to solve pressing problems and change how communities work together.  

Our work has spread across the U.S. and globally.

For nearly 30 years, we have partnered with individuals, organizations, networks, and coalitions of all shapes and sizes to combat the divisions and inwardness in society. The Turn Outward approach has been adopted by some of the world’s largest nonprofits and is utilized by communities in more than 40 countries worldwide.

We want to help you create more impact. 

Whether you need to strengthen the results of a network of organizations, create more alignment and impact in your place-based efforts, or are an individual wanting to drive change with more intention and purpose, The Harwood Institute can work with you.
