The Greater Linden Neighborhood Leadership Academy (NLA) is an expansion of the greater Columbus Neighborhood Leadership Academy initially launched by United Way of Central Ohio in 2012. The program is inspired by aspirations of building a diverse, opportunity-rich Greater Linden community that bridges social spheres for a vital and inclusive North, South and East Linden.
With an emphasis on “Stronger Together,” this unique Linden leadership program is designed to equip residents with the network and knowledge to collaborate and tools to create change. Participants will aspire to make a positive impact in their neighborhoods by building upon existing assets of their community.
Learning opportunities will be designed such that participants benefit from a good balance of traditional, classroom-based learning with highly-engaging experiential learning opportunities including community tours and field trips.
