What Does an Institution get from NCCLO Membership?
Institutions get the opportunity to participate with other organizations in building regional cooperation and understanding between Latino immigrants and other communities.
NCCLO puts you and other leaders from member organizations in the position to lead the way toward a more united community, by building relationships across lines of geography, race, religion, etc. We do this by giving people the opportunity to work together on areas of interest such as housing, health care, education, and opportunities for youth.
Help from NCCLO staff to organize on specific local issues
Organizers will respond to specific requests for help in strategizing around a particular local issue, and will work with a group of leaders in your organization who are committed to following through on a collective strategy. Issues in the past have included crime, drug abuse, after school programs, abandonment, and housing.
Leadership training for people in your organization
Nationally recognized training from the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF) and regular local leadership training are important components of our work, and are available to member organizations at a reduced fee.
Technical assistance on organizational development issues
Organizers work with the Strategy Team and participants of member organizations on customized strategic planning retreats, fundraising trainings, and board development training.
