Now Recruiting LeadersApril 18, 2018 | By Patti
We have a special leadership opportunity for your neighborhood. As part of our GO (Great Opportunities) Neighborhoods Initiative, Houston LISC offers leadership development workshops for resident leaders, organizational representatives and other community stakeholders. These trainings build important leadership capacity to transform communities.
The 2018 training cycle will focus on solutions to improve health and equity. Many communities have high rates of disease and lack an overall sense of wellness. Sessions will explore the root causes and how to create environments where all residents can be healthy and safe.
We are recruiting neighborhood teams to participate in our 2018 cycle of the Training 4 Trainers (T4T) program. A neighborhood team should include up to 5-7 members and be a mix of about 4-5 residents and 1-2 staff from a non-profit or business in your neighborhood. Individuals not affiliated with a team are also encouraged to apply.
Training Topics Include
Facilitating Great Meetings
Using Data for Community Initiatives
Community Health & Equitable Opportunity
Employing Shared Leadership
Community Power & Resolving Conflict
Asset Mapping Your Neighborhood Strengths
Best Practices for Engaging Community
Planning, Implementing & Evaluating Community Projects
Schedule of Trainings
T4T is for emerging and seasoned leaders, residents who have been involved in community building OR individuals who work for an organization that supports community development. T4T participants must be able to attend 6 monthly learning sessions, and commit to teaching other leaders after they graduate the program. See the program flyer for more information.
We have a limited amount of seats, and would like to extend the opportunity for you to nominate candidates you think would be a good fit to serve on a team. This flyer gives more information about the program, meeting times, and expectations. Please share it with any potential nominees.
Candidates will be interviewed and selected by end of May for a program start date of June 30th.
Please contact Iris Gonzalez at email@example.com or 713-597-6837 with questions about the T4T program or how to nominate a team or individual.
