Neighborhood Institute
The Center for Neighborhoods is pleased to announce applications are being accepted for the Spring Neighborhood Institute.  The Neighborhood Institute is a 12-week leadership education program created to equip neighborhood leaders with the skills and resources needed to initiate positive change in the community through their neighborhood, homeowner and condo associations.  The classes will be held from 6-8:30 p.m. each Tuesday night from February 7-April 24 in the Community Room of Kosair Charities, 982 Eastern Parkway.  Dinner will be provided. 
Each semester of the Neighborhood Institute begins by identifying and assessing what class members view as their most pressing issues.  Topics often requested include code enforcement, conflict resolution, increasing neighborhood participation and working with local government agencies, among many others.  The process also includes expert speakers, community projects, networking and group problem solving.  If you are interested in participating or have questions, please call Lisa Dettlinger at 589-0343 or e-mail her at lisad@centerforneighborhoods.org
