Resident Leadership

Resident Leadership

Residents in the West Side know what their neighborhoods need. They know what it takes to create change. One way that residents create transformation is by working in community-based organizations that advocate on behalf of neighborhoodresidents. Through these organizations, residents develop strong relationships with one another and links to vital information or resources. We call this social networking, and it is the lifeblood of Making Connections Partnership.

One requirement of strong and supportive neighborhoods is that residents have authentic engagement and participate as decision makers in the West Side. It is also vital that leaders are well-equipped and trained to serve their communities. Making Connections supports strategies that promote resident engagement and leadership development in a number of ways.
