In-kind support to Ohio neighborhood residents in Alliance, Canton, and Massillon to participate in training programs that enhance the participation of residents in making effective decisions about their neighborhood. The purpose of the
program is to establish networks among leaders, institutions, and their neighborhoods; to build upon the leaders' past experience; to deepen the neighborhood leaders' understanding of the general community; and to improve the residents' ability to solve problems on their own or in cooperation with other neighborhood groups and institutions.
The mission of Neighborhood Leadership Training is to support established and emerging neighborhood leaders through a leadership development process and to contribute to the quality of life in their neighborhoods by assisting in the planning and implementation of neighborhood improvement strategies.
The Neighborhood Leadership Training Program is designed to increase the participation and effectiveness of neighborhood residents in deciding on the future of their neighborhood and their city. Emphasis is placed on capacity building and the identification of neighborhood assets.
From the History of Neighborhoods, to Conflict Resolution, to Neighborhood Goal Setting, the classroom sessions will offer participants knowledge about issues and resources that affect their neighborhood. Additional leadership skills and new contacts will assist them in furthering their neighborhood and personal goals. They will also receive a certificate honoring their completion of the program. Upon graduation, they will become a part of the growing network of neighborhood leaders, the Neighborhood Leadership Council, which meets on a monthly basis to exchange information about their neighborhood activities, exchange ideas and networks.
