Partnerships Academy is a training program that supports community-based park groups and individual volunteers to achieve success.
Partnerships Academy Fellowship is geared towards community groups who are committed to getting to the next level of their development as a group or with a specific project. Fellowship participants work with Partnerships for Parks to create a timeline for their initiative, and get support to achieve it through coaching and peer support. Our in-person sessions will help you define your goals, develop an action plan, monitor your progress, and evaluate your work.
The application period has closed for the 2013 Partnerships Academy Fellowship. Please check here for updates about next year’s program.
Partnerships Academy Workshops are free and open for registration to community groups that support NYC Parks, street trees, and other green spaces. Regular workshops featuring expert guest speakers are tailored to fit the unique needs of park volunteers. Topics include time management, branding, working with NYC Parks and elected officials, networking, and event planning. If you have limited time, and a desire to enhance your skills and network with other community group leaders, Partnerships Academy Workshops are for you.
