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.
