GREAT LAKES URBAN
Great Lakes Urban is strengthening urban communities across the Great Lakes region. It is recognized and trusted as a coaching and training catalyst for citizen engagement and faith-based involvement in neighborhood transformation.
Great Lakes Urban (GLU) partners in specific neighborhoods with teams of residents and leaders who choose to work together for the wellbeing (i.e. Shalom) of their place. GLU provides training, coaching, and support services that help residents, organizational representatives, and community groups to effectively participate in this collaborative effort.
Great Lakes Urban provides a suite of training, coaching, and certification activities for urban congregation and community leaders in the Great Lakes region. GLU prioritizes the development and placement of leaders of color in the specific communities in which it is working.
Great Lakes Urban strengthens community and ministry organizations in under-resourced urban communities. GLU offers a wide range of capacity building supports for organizations and congregations. The intended outcome is healthy partnerships and engagements with neighbors who are strengthening their neighborhoods.
