Fall 2021 leadership development training series.

My leadership development series for community board members – and the civically engaged public – will be held online this year. The trainings are designed to hone expertise on important local government functions and constituencies, and all are welcome to join.


How to Use Discover DYCD!
Our community board members often ask, “What youth services exist in my community?” Now, there is a quick answer! The NYC Department of Youth & Community Development (DYCD) just released a new app to show all the youth services, and other DYCD investments, available right in your own neighborhood. Join us for this exciting presentation and learn how to access this list at your fingertips!

Manhattan 101: An Introduction to our Borough and Our City
Led by Rob Snyder, Manhattan Borough Historian
Manhattan is so dense and dynamic that you can lose sight of its long history. In a short lecture and discussion, Manhattan Borough Historian Robert W. Snyder will describe how big changes in labor and economics, immigration and migration, and the evolution of our island landscape have shaped our own time. We will devote special attention to how the latest Census data affected how we live and work! This cohort will then break into small groups to discuss what these changes mean for our neighborhoods.
*New Date*
Monday, November 8           6 p.m.

Human Rights Law & Protections Against Discrimination Based on Race & Color
Presented by the NYC Commission on Human Rights
This session provides a historical context for race and color-based discrimination and how it has impacted the lives of New Yorkers, institutions, and the delivery of services and resources in New York City. This course educates participants on their rights and protections against discrimination under the Human Rights Law. Participants will analyze concepts related to race and color, learn about efforts and resistance to combat racism, and find ways to become the voices for social and racial justice.
