Neighborhood Leadership Development Program Seeks 2021 Applicants
In 2006, the Jack, Joseph, and Morton Mandel Foundation, along with former Cleveland Mayor Michael White, established a leadership training program for engaged neighborhood leaders. The Neighborhood Leadership Development Program is a free, 16 session community engagement training program for residents of Cleveland, and its inner-ring suburbs, who are working on projects within the City of Cleveland and who are passionate and determined to make a positive impact on their communities.
Each year, 20 committed individuals are chosen for the program. NLDP participants and graduates are a diverse group with many interests who are working on a wide variety of issues to improve life in their communities.
The program sessions will cover topics such as program planning, marketing & communications, program fundraising, conflict resolution and negotiation, community engagement methods, and more.
Every NLDP participant and NLDP graduate also has ongoing access to the services of a Program Coach. NLDP coaches give advice and support tailored to the needs of the participant.
The 16 sessions take place on Saturdays at Trinity Commons at 2230 Euclid Avenue beginning September 18. The deadline for applications is AUGUST 15, 2021. For additional information, the 2021-2022 curriculum and an online application, visit or call 216-776-6167.
