Apply for the Neighborhoods Rising Institute, July 27th-August 7th
Alliance San Diego is seeking applicants for its annual Neighborhoods Rising Institute, a summer leadership development program designed to empower and educate community leaders on local progressive efforts, best civic engagement practices, and social justice issues pertinent to moving San Diego in a progressive direction where all residents can achieve their full potential. We are seeking leaders who are interested in making a difference in their community.
NRI participants will attend learning sessions (5 days) and will also participate in a real community outreach operation (a field component-5 days). Participants will have an opportunity to engage residents in selected San Diego neighborhoods on local issues, gather feedback, encourage civic participation, and provide information on community resources available to them. Participants in the summer institute will receive a $500 stipend for their participation in the program, as well as the opportunity to continue as part of our Fall Civic Engagement Program through November 8th.
