Taking Your Organization to The Next Level (Please read full description for recent changes)
This fall, the City will offer Taking Your Organization to The Next Level, a free online training course led by Program Consultant Steve Hixon, designed to help neighborhood associations learn leadership development and skills to increase their group participation. Facilitated by the Citys HUD Community Resources Division and the Office of Neighborhood Services, the training will consist of six virtual classes to be held over three months as follows:
Strategic Planning Intro
-Sept. 18, 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
-Sept. 20, 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
Operational Plan Development
-Oct. 23, 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
-Oct. 25, 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
-Nov. 20, 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
-Nov. 22, 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
**Recent Changes** Neighborhood groups may register up to three representatives from their group and invite two community partners to participate in this free training. Each organization will be expected to take part in at least five of the six classes for a total of 20 hours in order to receive a certificate of completion for the course and be eligible to apply for Neighborhood Development Grants for the 2022-23 program year.
Organizations can have one member participate in all 20 hours or split the hours between different members as shown below, providing organizational flexibility as needed. (These are just examples you can use any combination needed to reach your 20 hours) We understand scheduling conflicts arise but It is encouraged for all representatives or partners to plan to attend each class.
