The Community Development Worker Training was designed to educate and train participants in three specific areas. First, the training was designed to educate participants in the roles and responsibilities of three different types of community development workers: the coordinator, the facilitator, and the animator. The second area of focus was training the participants in how to enter a community. Thirdly, the training sought to expose participants to two different approaches to community development, the top down approach and the bottom up approach.
