The Neighborhood Institute is a free, 12-week neighborhood leadership training program held twice per year that equips neighborhood leaders to affect positive change in their communities. Neighborhood Institute has graduated resident leaders from all over Metro for over 30 years.

Day sessions will be focused on providing more in-depth and intensive information in special areas of interest and stay connected to the wider network of institute alumni from many neighborhoods.
