Creating resident-driven change
The Neighborhood's First Engagement Model was created during the LEAP planning process, and is a training tool that documents a resident-led method of creating positive community change. The model encourages participation of all stakeholders in advocating for a better quality of life in all neighborhoods and improved communication among neighbors. The model is intended to be used by the leaders of volunteer neighborhood organizations and the staff of neighborhood-based community development organizations.
