Launching a Connector Academy in 2014

CartStarting in 2014, we are launching an innovative project to build up community leaders and empower residents to strengthen the community and their block through projects of their own. All residents will have a chance to participate or lead workshops during our Connector Academy. The workshops will cover a wide range of topics and skill-building of interest to community residents. You’ll then have an opportunity to join our Connector Lab and apply to receive a mini-grant to implement a community building project, activity or event that will strengthen your community. This project is made possible through a grant from the Bush Foundation.
