Center for Urban Leadership Development
Helping youth (K-12) with academics, identity and leadership
Working toward just systems and rebuilt relationships
Offering business ownership and job opportunities
Beyond the academic focus our goals are to strengthen each participant in the areas of goal setting, personal development plans, motivation, empowerment, leadership development and pursuing post-secondary education.
The Nehemiah Center for Justice & Reconciliation (NCJR) is a part of the broader Nehemiah-Center for Urban Leadership Development. We work in collaboration with other organizations as is strategic and appropriate. We also utilize a logic model with specific measurable outcomes.
We believe that deep transformation happens when learning includes, 1) study, 2) mentoring, and 3) hands-on experience – in the context of community.nnNehemiah’s Urban Impact creates purposeful environments for the personal and leadership development of our participants.
