Programs for Grassroots Leaders

Are You a Natural Leader?

  • Do you have ideas about how to make things better in the community?
  • Do you get things done
  • Do people come to you for help
  • Do you inspire others to share their ideas and get involve? 
  • Do you care about building a community that works for everyone?
  • Do you like meeting new people and learning new things
  • Do you want to be around others who want to organize to improve community life?

...IF SO, THE NATURAL LEADERS MAY BE RIGHT FOR YOU!

We know that our community has many “everyday leaders” who often aren’t recognized or heard. We believe that things would go better for everyone if they were. But we also know that support helps and so does being around others who also want to improve things.

NLI especially supports everyday leaders from groups that aren’t well-represented in many decision-making groups: people of color, low- and moderate-income people, and immigrants.
