The Center has provided training to hundreds of community organizations across the country. Societal problems addressed by the WC’s grassroots network include youth violence, substance abuse, teen pregnancy, homelessness, joblessness, family dissolution, poor education, and deteriorating neighborhoods.
The Woodson Center has developed a robust plan that rests on a solid foundation of expanding community work. Our supporters understand that any messaging on race and upward mobility must be built on work that proactively addresses these issues on the community level where real people live. Our goal is to go beyond capturing public attention to transform the country, one community at a time.
Advice and counsel directs you certain places – character and integrity takes you by the hand and leads you there.

The Woodson Center offers on-site and virtual programs that provide training to underserved communities, faith and community based organizations, and grassroots leaders.
