Last week LISC and Asociación Puertorriqueños en Marcha (APM) held the first meeting of their Leadership Academy for Eastern North Philadelphia residents. The two nonprofits are partnering to provide leadership training to a variety of community members, ranging in age from youth to older adults. The training sessions will empower residents to take leadership roles in our Sustainable Communities Initiative, and foster multigenerational leadership in the neighborhood.

Through the various training sessions, participants will learn how to engage members of the community, build networks, coordinate volunteers, solve problems, manage conflict, and other helpful skills for neighborhood leadership. These sessions will also provide residents with basic skills on video production and campaign development.
