Registration is now open for the 2017 Neighborhood Leadership Academy.
The Neighborhood Leadership Academy, created in 2002, connects resources at the University — Creating Whole Communities and University of Missouri Extension — with residents and neighborhoods throughout the metropolitan area who are interested in improving their communities.
The Neighborhood Leadership Academy (NLA) provides hands-on leadership training that emphasizes community building principles and strategies, project planning, organizational leadership and management practices, and personal leadership skills.
Participants are actively involved in their neighborhoods and represent communities from throughout the St. Louis region. Academy participants may be neighborhood association members, community leaders, resident volunteers, community-based organization staff, business owners, local government staff, and municipal elected officials.
Participants who successfully complete the program receive a Certificate in Neighborhood Leadership from the Chancellor of the University of Missouri–St. Louis.
