Mayor's Neighborhood University Dates & Curriculum

New and experienced leaders gain confidence and learn valuable skills as to how to use their voice to actively participate in effecting change. Participants experience a deeper sense of their own purpose as the next generation of leaders and a greater appreciation for the assets of their neighborhood.

The Mayors Neighborhood University is a valuable resource for residents who live within the City of Tampa: designed to build neighborhood leadership, enhance awareness of and access City services, and create ambassadors for the City.

Applications are no longer being accepted for Class X beginning in August 2018. Please refer to the Mayor's Neighborhood University webpage for information regarding future sessions
