We plan to build on the success of our first year, with participants, leaders, and trainers achieving deeper levels of engagement and incorporate program adaptations for new participants in all three regions. We’ll also collaborate with other organizations and groups to synergize our efforts and share best practices for community engagement to improve our environment and community health.
In 2019, we expanded our Leadership Development Program and implemented it in three target regions: the San Fernando Valley, South East LA and the San Gabriel Valley. Nature for All has developed an educational curriculum to provide orientation presentations, Community Base-Building educational trainings, Leadership Development trainings, and Train of Trainers to offer community members a wide variety of engagement opportunities based on their time capacity, levels of interest, and knowledge of the issues.
In 2019, we offered:
- 18 community orientations, with 490 participants
- 12 Community Base Building trainings, with 177 participants
- 3 Leadership Development trainings, with 61 participants
- 1 Train of Trainers training, with 12 graduates
