Who is this for?

We welcome participants who have a passion and interest in learning and practicing neighborhood organizing skills including neighborhood and community organization staff, board and volunteers, as well as neighborhood residents who are not formally connected to an organization. We welcome people at a variety of skill levels, from people who are just getting started to experienced organizers and leaders looking to refresh or gain new skills. For each class we aim to recruit a culturally and geographically diverse group of participants.

How it works

Neighborhoods Now! Spring 2017 session offers four different classes that are each a day long. Course participants are expected to attend all four of the day-long classes, with follow-up thinktank sessions with your fellow class organizers, a planned field action, guest speakers, and a graduation. During the entirety of the course and your new connection to CURA’s Neighborhood Organizing and Leadership Program, participants will have access to 1-2-1 assistance from CURA staff.
