ALUMNI

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.

Network of Community Advocacy

Our approach to community building focuses on engagement and empowerment. We encourage residents to take charge of their neighborhoods, to create block parties, organize street clean-ups and reach out to neighbors.
