Miami Community Leadership Forum

Residents throughout South Florida are invited to sharpen their leadership skills at the two-day Miami Community Leadership Forum on May 18 and 19, hosted by Neighborhood Housing Services of South Florida (NHSSF). The Forum is free to attend and will be held at the Frankie Rolle Center (3750 S. Dixie Hwy.) in Coconut Grove. 

Panelists from across the non-profit, local government, and private sectors will guide participants on a series of topics that cover community and leadership issues. Among the distinguished panel of speakers is David Lawrence Jr., Chair of The Children’s Movement of Florida.

“The Community Leadership Forum is one part of our ongoing series of workshops that seek to bring together residents from all over Miami-Dade County to exchange ideas and learn ways they can be active leaders in the development and change of their communities,” says Ryan Shedd, Leadership Training Coordinator for NHSSF. “After participating in several of our Community Leadership Training events, our community partners have gone on to establish neighborhood associations, service organizations, and advocacy groups!”

In partnership with The Collaborative Development Corporation, the Forum will guide 100 South Florida residents through a series of activities and workshops, including leadership training, self-exploration and skills assessment, management skills, and their understanding of community issues and policies. A special focus of the Forum is to provide training to residents of Miami-Dade’s diverse urban core neighborhoods, including Liberty City, Brownsville, Little Haiti, Wynwood, Allapattah, Overtown, and West Coconut Grove, to capture their interest in becoming more effective leaders within their communities.

Seating is limited and residents can sign up for free by contacting Ryan Shedd of NHSSF at 305-751-5511 ext 1152. Program materials, lunch, and refreshments will be provided. Attendees will also receive a Certificate of Completion for attending both days of the forum.

NHSSF is a local nonprofit organization that collaborates with residents and other stakeholders to stabilize neighborhoods and develop sustainable housing.
