NEXT3Coro is seeking nominations and applications from individuals who are passionate about making an impact in the community, have an interest in discovering new ways of tackling community challenges, and are genuinely curious about a particular theme or issue of relevance to the quality of life in their community. Participants will learn about the Wilkinsburg Comprehensive Plan of 2010 and have an opportunity to explore & address priorities that are relevant for the next five years.

 If you are interested in learning more about NEXT or are on the fence about applying, we invite you to join us at our first session in Wilkinsburg on Thursday, October 1st. You will have the opportunity to gain insight into what the program entails and apply that evening. If you are interested, please contact Rebecca Lobley, Coro’s Recruitment Manager for additional information at rlobley@coropittsburgh.org or 412-258-2673

NEXT Neighborhood Leaders is a part-time leadership enhancement and community-building program for people who work, live-in, or care about Wilkinsburg. The program is meant to be both flexible and challenging. Flexible, in that the program is broken up into 3 modules that go for 2 months with a break in between, and if you need to take a break you are able to continue additional modules at a later time. Challenging, in that it is designed to bring diverse individuals together to work through difficult conversations in order to come together and grow as leaders to revitalize the Wilkinsburg community.

Applications are due September 15, 2015. All applicants will be notified of the status of their application no later than September 30, 2015. The program begins October 1st, 2015.
