About Neighborhood Institute The Neighborhood Institute is open to all neighborhoods, Metro Council Districts and the whole community. There is no charge to attend.

The Neighborhood Institute is a neighborhood leadership-education program established in 1987 by the Center For Neighborhoods, a non-profit civic organization. The Neighborhood Institute equips neighborhood leaders with the resources necessary to effect positive change by acting through and with their neighborhood groups.

Part of the Neighborhood Institute curriculum includes a self-directed project in the community. Through the class projects, people become engaged in the community as they branch out and apply the information and knowledge from the class to real life situations.

For more information, contact John Hawkins, 502-589-0343 or johnh@centerforneighborhoods.org.
