Resident Leadership Program

Make a difference today! Be a leader in your community.

Resident Leadership Program

Identify your community’s strengths.

Advocate for positive powerful change in your neighborhood.


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.

Our Resident Leadership Program is based on over a decade of NeighborWorks® America’s experience in training emerging leaders. NHS New Haven will provide all training materials & dinner. You must attend at least four workshops to earn a NeighborWorks certificate. 

In fall 2021, NHS Community Building and Organizing staff and board members are participating in the new NeighborWorks America Facilitator Training.  We look forward to holding our next resident leadership program in January 2022 with the new Building Leaders Building Community curriculum.
