Sharpen your community organizing skills.

At Citizens Committee, we don’t just give out grants. We host free community workshops on great ways to mobilize your neighbors, raise funds (beyond our own grants), navigate city government, and more. We share stories, tools, and tips to help you launch or strengthen a community building project.

Our workshops are only for grassroots volunteer groups (e.g., block and tenants associations) or community members looking to initiatie a neighborhood improvement project, not for projects or paid staff of established organizations.

Below are workshops we currently offer, including upcoming dates. Complete four workshops in our Neighborhood Leadership Institute series and receive a certificate.

RSVP is required

We’re also happy to do workshops on an as requested basis, in your neighborhood, on your schedule, tailored to your project.
