WORKSHOPS & TRAININGS FOR THE PUBLIC
Learn how to advocate for your community – visit our EmpowerLA Eventbrite page to sign up for one of our workshops on topics like how to run for office or how to find and use data to give credibility to your community advocacy efforts or grant applications.
These workshops are open to everyone, whether you’re a current Neighborhood Council member or not, and are often repeated at different locations around the City of Los Angeles: http://NCevents.Eventbrite.com
WORKSHOPS & TRAININGS FOR CURRENT NEIGHBORHOOD COUNCIL MEMBERS
Required trainings for current Neighborhood Council (NC) board members are now conducted online through a tool called Cornerstone. Cornerstone logins are given to you when you are seated as a board member. Please write to us at Communications@EmpowerLA.org if you need your login.
Optional trainings and workshops for current NC members are usually shared via direct email to board members or in your NC’s Monthly Profile Report, rather than being listed on this page. Offerings include both regional and Citywide outreach workshops for NC Outreach Chairs and committee members, and social media consultations for individual Neighborhood Councils. If you are a current NC board member, ask your Neighborhood Empowerment Advocate (NEA) about training opportunities currently being offered.
FUNDING TRAINING FOR NC BOARD MEMBERS & TREASURERS
All Neighborhood Council board members are required to take training on the ethical management of public funds. NC Treasurers and other board members who handle financial transactions for their NC must take additional funding training.
All NC funding-related trainings are conducted by the Office of the City Clerk, who also administers the Neighborhood Council Funding Program. Get the City Clerk’s Funding training schedule on their NC Funding Program webpage.
YOUTH LEADERSHIP PROGRAMS
The Department of Neighborhood Empowerment is proud to offer two youth leadership training series for Angelenos age 14-24: Civic Youth and IgniteLA. These series are usually offered over the summer and applications are required for consideration. Learn more by visiting our Ignite LA and Civic Youth webpages.
