This research is a qualitative research study with the purpose of studying the social capital and the community potential for a healthy community profile management and also studying the guidelines for the sub-district learning curriculum development in the healthy community profile management. The lessons were learned from 9 villages by using the rapid ethnographic community assessment process (RECAP), triangulation, content analysis, and story analysis. It was found that there were 30 places which had the potential of social capital for serving as the learning resources. The potential groups and the readiness of the learning resources for the sub-district learning curriculum development were classified into 7 learning systems: (1) participatory sub-district management system (2) community welfare system (3) safety agriculture system (4) community economy system (5) community learning system (6) community healthcare system, and (7) local wisdom system. The sub-district learning curriculum for a healthy community profile management was developed with participation by using local wisdom for local development. Regarding the guidelines for the sub-district learning curriculum development for healthy community profile management, there were 5 components: Menu 1 area profile and contexts; Menu 2 area management; Menu 3 learning process; Menu 4 innovation development, and Menu 5 directions of work implementation. This study reflected on utilizing the social capital and the community potential for sub-district planning and management. The communities perceived the importance in arranging and using the data for solving problems and serving the needs of the local areas with the determination to develop people’s quality of life.
