THE CENTER for COMMUNITY LEADERSHIP runs five (5) programs geared towards training the next few generations of communal and civic leaders in the New York area. The programs range from high school students to current mid-level non-profit organizational professionals.
COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS FELLOWSHIP
Community Connections Fellowship is designed to empower the next set of leaders in the Jewish communal world to engage in innovative community-building throughout New York City, Long Island, and Westchester. The fellowship is dedicated to teaching and challenging participants to learn about the importance of working with diverse populations. Fellows gain skills in inter-group relations, coalition building, and cultural competency by hearing from experts in these topics.
Queens Fellowship is a 9-month professional development and networking program for non-profit, faith, government and community leaders serving Queens. The Queens Fellowship aims to convene leaders throughout the borough and challenge them to engage in community building, collaborate to find solutions together and create a better quality of life for all. Ultimately, the Fellows utilize their diversity as an asset for themselves, their agencies, their communities, and Queens as a whole. Fellows participate in monthly professional seminars, personal development trainings and networking opportunities with key decision makers in our city.
WE ARE ALL BROOKLYN FELLOWSHIP
We Are All Brooklyn Fellowship teaches and challenges participants to work together. Fellows will learn how they can help communities share resources, manage dynamic tensions, and collaborate on solving problems. Ultimately, Fellows will be able to utilize diversity as an asset for themselves, their agencies, their community, and Brooklyn. Through building, broadening, and strengthening ethnic, cultural, and religious ties in Brooklyn, leaders come to understand that there is far more that unites us than divides us.
