2015 Resident Leadership Program @ NHS of New Haven - now accepting applications!

In March 2010, Neighborhood Housing Services of New Haven (NHS) launched its first annual Resident Leadership Program.

Based on a curriculum developed in conjunction with our national partner, NeighborWorks® America, the program consists of five units. The primary goals of this program are to transfer concrete leadership skills to residents, create a space for participants to share their experiences with one another, and increase residents’ 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.

 

Too often, leadership programs are built to fill in the “missing gaps” in emerging leaders, rather than hone the skills they already possess or allow time to build confidence and skills. This program aims to change that paradigm.

 

NHS is pleased to announce that registration is now open for our 2015 Resident Leadership Program. We are featuring a fresh lineup of workshops for this year’s program, but they continue to focus on helping resident leaders to build tangible skills and effect positive change in their communities.


This year's classes are:
March 31 - Building Winning Teams
April 7 - Tips for Effective Communication
April 21 - Staying Strong through Recruitment and Retention
May 5 - Using Planning to Create Action
May 19 - Effectively Using Community Resources

Registration deadline is Tuesday, March 17. A $25 registration fee is required upon acceptance into the program.

 

The 2015 Resident Leadership Program Application can be found here.

Innovators and Idealists: Meet the 2019 Cohort of Rubinger Fellows

The winners of this year’s Michael Rubinger Community Fellowship award have long been focused on ways to expand economic opportunity and build safer, stronger communities. Through the fellowship program, they now have the chance to focus on transformative efforts they might not otherwise have the time or resources to pursue. “All of us in community development stand on the shoulders of local leaders,” said Michael Rubinger, the former LISC CEO for whom the program is named. “When we nurture them, we expand the nation’s capacity to create jobs, build housing, improve health and fuel cohesive communities.”

A Farewell to the Rubinger Fellows Class of 2017-2018

Our ten inaugural Rubinger Fellows have come to the end of their fellowship year, and our hats are off to them! In addition to the manuscripts, playbooks, poems, sermons and other creations the fellows produced to cap the year, they shared some reflections on their highlights and lessons learned as Rubinger Fellows. Watch the videos to hear what they had to say.

Helping Workers Build Skills, Grow Incomes

Citizens Bank has announced funding to expand the impact of LISC Financial Opportunity Centers in three cities, fueling programs that help people train for jobs in growth industries and move from entry-level positions to career pathways. "By supporting these programs through the Citizens Charitable Foundation, Citizens is helping us create opportunities for more people to raise their standards of living—and, in the process, contribute to economic growth in their communities,” said Maurice A. Jones, LISC president and CEO.
