Local leaders and community-based organization staff who are passionate and already active in low-income communities in San Diego are invited to participate in the Spring 2016 Resident Leadership Academy (RLA). Upon completion of this non-consecutive, free 4-day intensive training, participants will be poised to facilitate their own community-based RLA.
Learn content and facilitation practices to effectively lead an RLA. The RLA curriculum covers a wide range of topics—community building principles, healthy food systems, safe and walkable communities, land use planning, and leadership & advocacy. Finally, implementation of a community improvement project—including needs assessment, planning, implementation & evaluation—is integral to the RLA curriculum.
RLAs are an authentic way to engage residents to bring positive changes to neighborhoods across the county. RLAs provide powerful leverage to advance the County’s Live Well San Diego vision of a region that is Building Better Health, Living Safely and Thriving.
