NHS of New Haven is now accepting applications for our 2017 Resident Leadership Program!
About the Resident Leadership Program:
In March 2010, Neighborhood Housing Services of New Haven launched itsBuilding Leaders, Building Communities: Resident Leadership Program. The program was an essential element of the training and education component of ourNeighborhood Revitalization Institute.
Based on a curriculum developed in conjunction with our national partner,NeighborWorks®America, the program consists of five units. The primary goals of this program are to transfer concrete leadership skills to New Haven residents, create a space for participants to share their experiences with one another and increase their sense of being agents of change. One key to achieving these goals starts with the fundamental belief that participants and the communities they represent are assets. Oftentimes leadership programs are built to fill in the “missing gaps” in emerging leaders rather than to hone the strengths they already possess or allow time to build confidence and skills. This program aims to change that paradigm.
We are pleased to be able to offer a new round of workshops for this year's program, and they are:
Building Leaders, Building Communities Curriculum
March 28, 2017:Art and Science of Leadership
April 4, 2017:Mapping Community Assets
April 18, 2017:Understanding Power for Community Change
May 2, 2017:Planning Successful Campaigns
May 9, 2017:Leading Great Meetings
Participants must attend at least four of the workshops listed above in order to receive a NeighborWorks Certificate. Sessions will be held from 6pm-8pm at NHS of New Haven. Dinner will be provided at 5:30pm.
