The Neighborhood Leadership Program is a partnership between the New York City Department of Small Business Services (SBS) and the Coro New York Leadership Center that provides individuals from neighborhoods across the City with the opportunity to develop their personal leadership skills, hone their commercial revitalization expertise, and learn new ways to lead change in their organizations and communities.
This six-month leadership training program provides participants with:
- Innovative management strategies that can be applied to their careers immediately
- A connection to key stakeholders and resources critical to implementing effective commercial revitalization efforts
- The resources and skills necessary to support small businesses and strengthen commercial districts
- A network of 2000+ engaged alumni making positive change in NYC
We will be accepting new applications for the Neighborhood Leadership Program in the fall. We encourage organizations to consider nominating a staff member to participate. For more information, view the Neighborhood Leadership Program brochure.

This year's program is generously supported by Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito and the Members of the New York City Council, the Surdna Foundation, Citi, and the Association for a Better New York.
