Barangays can rely on CLRG to deliver capacity building programs that suit their unique role in local governance. CLRG recognizes the barangay's special nature as a governmental institution that relies mostly on voluntary work from the community. Our courses and seminars for barangays emphasize their importance as the most visible, day-to-day face of government in the Philippines.
The Center's courses for barangays aim to:
Explain the crucial role of the barangay in overall area development
Orient barangay officials on the technical aspects of government administration that are normally handled by career local government staff
Familiarize barangay officials with municipal/city government policy and processes that affect them
Offer models for collaborative and community-based governance practices
Enhance the appreciation of the democratic space at the community level
