Catalyst Miami, in partnership with Goulds Park, Miami Children’s Initiative, County Commissioner Daniella Levine Cava, and County Commissioner Dennis Moss, will offer two leadership development programs this fall

MIAMI, Florida – In September, Catalyst Miami will offer two leadership development programs for individuals and families interested in growing as advocates and community leaders. Step Up Miami, a 12-week program, will be hosted in Goulds. People Empowering People, a 10-week program, will be hosted in Liberty City. The programs are open to all interested residents, with dinner and childcare provided at no cost.

Step Up Miami is a 12-week leadership development program that aims to generate a critical mass of neighborhood leaders interested in addressing poverty in Miami-Dade County. The program guides participants through an examination of current best practices in community development, the sharing of personal experiences, an exploration of diverse community development approaches, and hands-on application of problem solving strategies.

The next Step Up Miami cohort begins on Thursday, September 17, 2015 at Goulds Park, located at 11350 SW 216 Street, Miami, FL.

People Empowering People is a 10-week leadership development program with a strong community focus. Created by Cheryl Czuba, UConn Extension Educator, the PEP program builds upon individual life experiences and strengths to encourage growth in communication and problem solving skills, parent/family relationships, and community involvement.

The next People Empowering People cohort begins on Tuesday, September 29, 2015 at Charles Drew K-8 Center, located at 1775 NW 60th Street, Miami, FL.
