The writing skills that produced excellent college essays are not the same as those needed to convey precise information in a short period of time. This workshop will teach students to write an efficient and effective first year exam.

From the Mayor’s Office for Immigrant Affairs: Neighborhood Leadership Institute

Dear Friends and Colleagues, 

I hope all is well. The Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs is delighted to announce the second annual Neighborhood Leadership Institute (NLI), a leadership training program for emerging immigrant leaders.  In partnership with Citizens Committee for New York City, the Neighborhood Leadership Institute is a signature program of One NYC One Nation, a mayoral initiative increasing civic engagement within immigrant communities.

The Neighborhood Leadership Institutes will bring residents together on quality of life issues, build a network of community partners, provide a better understanding of government, and increase resilience through emergency preparedness training. This training will be led by the Office of Emergency Management and will serve as a pipeline for multilingual New York City residents to join Community Emergency Response (CERT) teams in their communities. Starting in April, we will conduct a series of NLI workshops in each of the five boroughs. 

The Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs is NOW accepting applications for the NLIs in each borough. The ideal Neighborhood Leadership Institute candidate is an emerging immigrant leader who wants to develop a better understanding of local government and a range of communication, problem solving and community building skills. Candidates must possess a strong motivation to participate in local civic engagement opportunities. Candidates must be interested in the well-being of their neighborhood and working within their community to make a difference. Upon completion of the Neighborhood Leadership Institute, groups will be connected to leadership and funding opportunities, and will receive a certificate of completion from the Mayor’s Office. Candidates must be proficient in English and be willing to commit to at least five 3-hour workshops to receive a certificate

For more information on workshop details and tentative dates, please see the institute brochure attached to this e-mail.  Applications are being accepted on a rolling basis HERE. Please share this opportunity widely. If you have specific questions contact Sarah Flatto at / 212-341-9075.
