Jan. 21, 2011 - PRLog -- ST. LOUIS – The University of Missouri–St. Louis is now accepting applications for the 2011 Neighborhood Leadership Academy. Each year the NLA brings together a diverse group of up to 20 current or potential neighborhood leaders for 10 sessions over a four-month period in a hands-on leadership training program that emphasizes community building principles, organizational leadership and management practices, and personal leadership skills. The 2011 NLA program begins Tuesday, February 15, and continues on select Tuesdays and Saturdays through May 10, meeting in the J.C. Penney Conference Center at UMSL. The deadline for applications is Thursday, February 10.

This program, created in 2002, connects university resources, including the Community Partnership Project, Nonprofit Management and Leadership Program, and University Extension, to residents and neighborhoods interested in creating more livable communities. Through the Academy, each participant completes a personal leadership development plan, designs a community-building project for their neighborhood, and makes a presentation about their work to their classmates.

Participants who successfully complete the program receive a Certificate in Neighborhood Leadership from the Chancellor of the University of Missouri–St. Louis and 3.0 Continuing Education Units.

More than 100 neighborhood leaders from throughout the St. Louis region have participated in the NLA, learning the skills and building the networks necessary to create livable communities.

There is a $400 fee to enroll in the NLA. The fee includes all instruction, box dinners at evening sessions, continental breakfasts at Saturday sessions, and parking. Most sessions are held at the J.C. Penney Conference Center (Room 126) at UMSL. Some are held at community sites. For more information and to register, please visit the NLA website at or call (314) 516-6590.
