District 6 Leadership Series

Once a year, the office of Council Member Castañeda-López hosts four sessions of the District 6 Leadership Series. The Series aims to connect existing or aspiring neighborhood leaders in District 6 to resources, expert trainers, peer support and one-on-one coaching that can help build their community leadership toolboxes.

The Leadership Series brings together a group of neighborhood leaders for one Saturday a month to learn about:

  • Building a group
  • Applying for grants and fundraising
  • Working with government officials
  • How to use social media and technology

Participants also have the opportunity to plan neighborhood-based projects using skills and knowledge acquired through the series.

Are you an existing or aspiring neighborhood leader in District 6? Join the second cohort of the District 6 Leadership Series to continue building your community leadership toolbox!
