Introducing the Neighborhood Change Certificate (Fall 2019)
Neighborhood Development is seeking 12 residents to join a cohort of other neighborhood influencers for a one month Neighborhood Change Certificate program. The group is intentionally limited to 12 so that neighborhood influencers have the opportunity to develop peer to peer relationships over the one month process. The certificate program consists of the four courses below. All Courses will be held on Mondays during the month of October in the cloud room of the Jordan Newby Library at Broad Creek from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. For course descriptions see tentative 2019 fall schedule.
