Sustaining change in our communities requires a steady stream of emerging and existing leaders dedicated to addressing pressing issues. The Urban Leadership Development Initiative engages community change makers in a year-long experience to equip them with the tools and knowledge necessary to develop their practice of leadership and build stronger communities.
Join us as we bring community leaders together to build a better world and push for real change to make a difference.
