About the Community Tool Box

The vision behind the Community Tool Box is that people — locally and globally — are better prepared to work together to change conditions that affect their lives. The Community Tool Box is a free, online resource for those working to build healthier communities and bring about social change. It offers thousands of pages of tips and tools for taking action in communities. Under continuous development since 1994, the Community Tool Box is widely used in teaching, training, and technical support. Currently available in English, Spanish, Arabic, and Farsi, and with millions of user sessions annually, it has reached those working in over 230 countries around the world.

The mission of the Tool Box is to promote community health and development by connecting people, ideas, and resources. With the belief that people can change their communities for the better, the University of Kansas Center for Community Health and Development developed the Community Tool Box as a public service. Our fervent hope is that these tools can make it easier for people to take action to assure healthier and more just communities throughout the world.
