The Community Development Educator facilitates programs in a number of priority areas in Washington County. Backed by University of Wisconsin research, the Community Development Educator works with local government, civic organizations, non-profit organizations, businesses and community leaders to enhance local decision-making and help communities respond to new challenges and opportunities. These priorities change as local needs change.  As facilitators, the Community Development Educator works in partnership with local people and organizations to meet identified local needs.
