Summer 2021 Virtual Training Institute
We hope you enjoyed the full week of training, August 23-27, 2021
As communities across the country grapple with the lingering effects of COVID-19 and, at the same time, tough issues around racial inequity and an uncertain economy, NeighborWorks is focused on capacity-building and the sharing of best practices. Knowledge, skills and new approaches have never been more important, but training must be flexible and cost-effective to work in our current environment.
To provide you with the expert instruction and networking opportunities you’ve come to expect from us, while addressing the difficulty of travel and participants' needs to be close to their homes and work, we offered a new kind of event—a Virtual Training Institute—that incorporated:
- More than 60 cutting-edge webinars with updated content
- Expert faculty-led multi-session courses to address your unique situation and challenges
- Timely, topical workshops on the latest strategies for serving your community
- Unparalleled networking and peer-learning opportunities
- A one-day “deep-dive” symposium

Virtual Event, 1:00 – 5:00 p.m. EDT | August 25, 2021
NeighborWorks America and members of the national Middle Neighborhood initiative explored ways to strengthen middle neighborhoods that are at risk—either due to displacement or decline—or ripe for improvement. Together, we learned about exciting new research and best practices for revitalizing middle neighborhoods.
This symposium focused on critical trends, challenges and opportunities, including:
- Housing Strategies
- Capital Strategies
- Wealth-Building Strategies
- Collaborative Strategies
- Resident Engagement Strategies
Participants came away with fresh approaches to bolster their revitalization work—and the models and inspiration to put those new ideas into practice.
