Neighborhood Builders Sessions Begin Feb. 5
OMAHA – Are you interested in helping make your neighborhood a safe place to live, work and raise a family?
The Neighborhood Center for Greater Omaha – in conjunction with the United Way of the Midlands, the University of Nebraska at Omaha, the Omaha Community Foundation, Creighton University Medical Center, and various neighborhood associations, businesses and private citizens – will present Neighborhood Builders this February.
The four-week program - set for Feb. 5, 12, 19 and 26 from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. – is designed to help build stronger, healthier neighborhoods in Douglas, Pottawattamie and Sarpy communities by assisting in developing positive leadership.
Each session will focus on a different topic block. The topics include building on neighborhood assets, using community resources, planning and organizing, and effective problem solving. The sessions will be facilitated by community leaders, local educators and business people. Lunch is included.
Participants who complete all four sessions will receive a Builder's Award.
Class size is limited, and registration is conducted on a first-come, first-served basis. The registration deadline is Tuesday, Feb. 1. All classes will be held in the Becic Room at Creighton University Medical Center, 601 N. 30th St. Free parking is available in the visitor lot.
