THE CENTER for COMMUNITY LEADERSHIP runs programs for training the next generations of communal and civic leaders in New York ranging from high school students to mid-level non-profit professionals.

Women in Faith
This program brings together professional women of different faiths and spiritual practices to gain understanding about each other and the role faith plays in their lives. Through facilitated dialogue participants learn to gain competence in listening and conversing with those different from themselves. They learn to:  address the issue of differences challenging the world; gain greater understanding and experience of other faith traditions; and deepen their own faith and understanding of the role it plays in their lives and in the country. As a culmination of the Fellowship, participants create and engage in a service project built around an issue of common concern.

We Are All New York (WAANY)
This is a 10-month professional development and networking program for non-profit, faith, government, and community leaders from the five boroughs of NYC. The  fellowship is dedicated to advancing and empowering NYC’s diverse leaders to become change agents. Through their shared experiences and participation, fellows come to understand that by building, broadening, and strengthening ethnic, cultural, and religious ties in NYC they can work together to affect positive change in their communities and help to build a more cohesive city.
