Building Strong Neighborhood Organization" is a 11 week series of workshops plus a graduation.  This is a leadership training program created specifically for participants in and leaders of resident-led, resident-controlled, democratically run neighborhood groups — as well as individuals who would like to start neighborhood associations in unorganized neighborhoods. Over 70 neighborhood leaders have graduated from this class in the past.  We consider anyone helping in a neighborhood organization or to start an organization to be a leader. 
This course is free and snacks are provided. 

Folks who complete the course are eligible for a $500 Micro Grant for a neighborhood project. One per neighborhood. 

Participants receive resources including a 3-ring binder full of numerous “how-to” articles on various aspects of creating and sustaining community-based organizations.

Applications are now being accepted.
