To build a great community, Baton Rouge needs great ideas and great community leaders - People Like YOU!

If you believe everyone deserves to live in a safe, hopeful neighborhood, if you want to learn from national and local leaders, and if you want to make a difference in your neighborhood, apply to join the Resident Leader Academy.

This academy is created to educate, inspire, and empower you with the necessary tools to effect the change that you want to see. You will learn about grant writing, project management, and how community development is, or isn't, getting done in our city. The experience will consist of team building, onsite training, networking, and a year-long action project. If you and a group of four other residents from your neighborhood graduate from the academy, you all will be eligible for a $2,500 grant to support the implementation of a year-long improvement project.
