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.


This is a 10-month professional development and networking program for nonprofit, 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. Contact Alyssa Hartstein with any questions.
