Training & Services

Developing and empowering community leaders

It’s the professionals “on the ground” who must counsel homebuyers, coach individuals with limited budgets, preserve and re-develop communities and so much more. But they are only as effective as their expertise, energy and commitment. Each person reaches within for the energy and commitment; NeighborWorks America builds their skills and expertise.

The comprehensive spectrum of courses, consulting, networking opportunities and other support provided by the NeighborWorks Services Group helps professionals and their organizations adopt innovations, improve performance and achieve meaningful impact. We offer organizational capacity assessments, skills-based training courses, leadership-development programs and sophisticated tools for quantifying outcomes.
