Neighbors Building Neighborhoods Academy

The NBN Academy offers a variety of training that was developed by residents and city staff to focus on peer-to-peer, interactive training that supports NBN core concepts. The goal is develop a multi-level educational program that will enhance the capacity of Norfolk's citizens to be engaged, responsible neighbors and community leaders.  

For the 2019/2020 school year we are still scheduling the following courses:

  • Communication Tools (January 2020)
  • Neighborhood Marketing (February 2020)
  • Assessing Your Neighborhood (April 2020)
  • Neighborhood Standards  (May 2020)

The Neighborhood Development Specialist for your area can also assist with bringing specialized courses to your neighborhood group or group of civic leagues (View your service area at Neighborhood Service Areas )

Please Note

We use volunteer resident experts wherever we can for our regular courses. Coordination of so many volunteers sometimes means that courses are subject to change. We also reserve the right to cancel if an insufficient number are registered so we encourage everyone to register at the Eventbrite link below.
