The mission of the Neighborhood Leadership Development Program is to enhance the diverse leadership abilities of engaged Clevelanders who are committed to creating a city and region which works for everyone.
In 2006, NLDP was established and funded by the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Foundation. The Neighborhood Leadership Development Program is a 16 session community engagement training program for residents of Cleveland, and its inner ring suburbs, who are working on projects within the City of Cleveland and who are determined to make a positive impact on their communities. Currently, there are 209 graduates of the program.
After the application process, 20 committed individuals are chosen for the program year. NLDP participants and graduates are a diverse group with many interests and are working on a wide variety of issues to improve life in their communities.
The program will cover topics such as program planning, marketing & communications, program fundraising, conflict resolution and negotiation, community engagement methods and more.
Every NLDP participant and NLDP graduate also has ongoing access to the services of a Program Coach. NLDP coaches give advice and support tailored to the needs of the participant.
The 16 sessions are on Saturdays at Trinity Commons at 2230 Euclid Avenue beginning August 25. The application period deadline is AUGUST 3, 2018.
