Braddock District Neighborhood College


Braddock District Neighborhood College 

Beginning in May, Braddock District Supervisor John Cook will be hosting a new Neighborhood College program. The Department of Neighborhood and Community Services will be supporting this program presentation.

The Neighborhood College is a civic engagement program open to residents interested in learning about Fairfax County and how to work with neighbors, community organizations and local government. This knowledge can be used to strengthen neighborhoods, build citizen engagement, and promote a strong sense of community. This is an excellent leadership program for residents who serve as officers on their homeowner or civic association boards, or who just want to learn more about how the County works.

Supervisor Cook is a Neighborhood College graduate and knows personally the tremendous value this program can bring to the community. It has been several years since the last Braddock District Neighborhood College and it is time to train the next set of community leaders and volunteers.

If you would like to learn more or register for the series, please contact Ann Sharp or Kiel Stone at 703-425-9300 or e-mail ann.sharp@fairfaxcounty.gov.
