Leadership Training Program, Neighborhood Programs
This program is offered free of charge to anyone that lives or works in Longmont that is interested in learning more about the community, and developing the skills needed to become an effective neighborhood leader.
Longmonts most important asset is its people. The combination of resident participation and active neighborhoods contributes to the improvement of the quality of life in our city. As we continue to meet the challenges of todays society, residents and neighborhoods play an important role in preserving and improving what is best about our city. As a result, the quality of neighborhood leadership becomes even more important.
The program objectives are:
- To broaden potential neighborhood leaders understanding of the community;
- To expand the pool of skilled neighborhood leaders;
- To encourage the establishment of networks among neighborhood leaders;
- To enhance the ability of neighborhoods
to resolve problems on their own or in cooperation with other neighborhoods
- To introduce participants to decision-makers in our citys government and throughout our community.
This Program has been designed and produced by the Neighborhood Group Leaders Association and the City of Longmonts Neighborhood Resources Program and involves participation in eight events offered the public annually (dates and times to be determined annually).
