Improving our urban communities requires a stream of emerging and existing leaders dedicated to addressing pressing issues. To meet these challenges, MetroMorphosis created the Urban Leadership Development Initiative (ULDI).
“As a community, we share common goals to make the livelihoods of all people better.”
The year-long program teaches select individuals how to identify opportunities, develop innovative solutions, and build coalitions designed to foster positive, long-term change.
Each participant is required to design and implement a “change effort” to improve an urban neighborhood. A critical component of this effort is the personal connection and mentorship from Raymond A. Jetson.
As a community, we share common goals to make the livelihoods of all people better. We focus on:
Communicating our vision
Developing working teams
Assessing needs & opportunities
“The amazing readings and mentors like Dr.Lori changed my view of leadership. I gained so much perspective on what real community change looks like and the complex web of the social issues we face. I connected with like minded people and we still work together to use the tools we learned at ULDI.” – Tyra Banks, ULDI Class of 2016
Join us as we bring community leaders together to build a better world and push for real change to make a difference.
