Community Leadership Training Series

The purpose of the virtual Community Leadership Training Series is to provide tools, instruction, and best practices to Community Board Members and engage everyday New Yorkers to learn more about the local government processes. It is an opportunity for current and new community board members to refresh and increase their knowledge of EEO: Equal Employment Opportunity, COIB: Conflicts of Interest Board, and the skills to Combat Implicit Bias. In addition, the series covers various topics related to community board governance, to enhance the effectiveness of members’ work. While the training series is designed with Community Board members in mind, the series is open to all interested in being informed on local government and public service.

**Ready for An Emergency Training

With severe weather events becoming more frequent and more extreme, it is more important than ever that New Yorkers are prepared for disasters. The NY Citizen Preparedness Training Program teaches residents to have the tools and resources to prepare for any type of disaster, respond accordingly and recover as quickly as possible to pre-disaster conditions. This training course will provide an introduction to responding to a natural or man-made disaster. Participants will be advised on how to properly prepare for any disaster, including developing family emergency plan and stocking up on emergency supplies. Each family that attends will receive one Preparedness kit.

The MBPO is proud to collaborate with the New York State Citizen Preparedness Corps and John Jay College of Criminal Justice to bring you the Citizen Preparedness Training Friday, November 17th at noon. This event will take place on the 2nd floor of the John Jay College Student Dining Hall at 524 West 59th Street New York, NY 10019. All participants MUST register in advance using the button above!
