Neighborhood Leadership Academy: Inner Suburbs
July 16 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm
NLA is a day-long training session that develops and equips community members with strategies they need to organize neighborhoods and volunteer-led groups.
NLA encourages attendees to take on leadership roles in their neighborhoods and provides the skills necessary to develop and execute collaborative projects where they live. The training is geographically based to empower residents’ interests in each community.
This year’s NLA focuses on the inner suburbs. The inner suburbs, sometimes referred to as first-ring suburbs, are the older communities of metropolitan areas that have experienced urban sprawl. In Omaha, this area extends from about I-680 to 156th Street, and from Fort Street to Harrison Street.
Attendees will learn leadership skills including:
- The difference between lone wolf organizing and community organizing
- How to use asset-based community development
- How to create change in your neighborhood and more!
