GHCC Seeks Workshop Leaders for 2015 Neighborhood Institute on April 18


Baltimore City is an extraordinary place, blessed with rich history, wonderful neighborhoods, and amazing people. It is also a landscape of many challenges. What if we could address these challenges – neighborhood by neighborhood – and move everyone forward to a stronger future?

Greater Homewood Community Corporation’s (GHCC) Neighborhood Institute is an annual event that provides community residents, neighborhood leaders, and community development professionals with the training and tools they need to tackle challenges big and small.

We are now recruiting workshop leaders for our 2015 Neighborhood Institute on Saturday, April 18 from 9:00 am – 3:30 pm at the Baltimore Design School.

From fundraising to local food access, equitable development, code enforcement, and advocating for 21st Century schools, our workshops are intended to outfit community members with a toolbox of skills to help them make Baltimore better.  In the past, experts from the American Civil Liberties Union, Nextdoor, the Baltimore Neighborhood Indicators Alliance, ABAG, the Community Law Center, What Weekly, and Fluid Movement have been among our many workshop leaders.

The ideal workshop will be interactive and share real-world, Baltimore City case examples. Workshop slots will be 55 minutes in length and include 30-40 participants. The deadline for submission is Friday, February 6, 2015. Presenters will be notified by Friday, February 13 if their proposal has been accepted.
