Neighborhoods Now! Program Calendar

The course is May 1-5 from 10am - 4pm each day conducted in person. The course will also have select guest speakers from the field. Two follow-up Think Tanks and graduation will be in-person.

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! offers five different classes that are each a day long. Course participants are expected to attend all five of the day-long classes, with follow-up Think Tank sessions with your fellow cohort organizers, 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-to-1 support from CURA staff.
