Statement of Commitment
Neighborhood Leadership runs from January-October 2019, with a follow-up session in early fall. The schedule amounts to over 14 days of training including program orientation and an off-site 3 day opening retreat, (5) Saturday leadership sessions, (5) weekday strategy sessions, optional evening sessions and Coro community events, (1) weekend presentation showcase and graduation. Due to the experiential nature of our training and the importance of the group in our work together, a commitment to attend all program sessions is preferred. Please note that full participation/attendance of the off-site Opening Retreat from Jan 24-26 and Closing Session/Graduation are required. The program calendar can be found on our website at www.coro.nyc
Due to known or unexpected circumstances, we understand that participants may need to miss a session. A total of 2 absences are possible with no more than 1 absence for a strategy session and no more than 1 absence for a leadership session. Absences exceeding this could result to your withdrawal from NLP.
Participants are expected to apply learning and strategies from Neighborhood Leadership to their "Neighborhood Change Project" and connect with a Coro advisor during the program.
If you have any questions about this program/commitment, please reach out to Garrett Lucien, Director of Neighborhood Leadership, at (212)248-2935 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
