O.C. Summer Leadership Academy Offers Training on Active Transportation, Housing, Food Access

A two-day summer training series for residents and community leaders in Anaheim, Garden Grove, and Santa Ana was launched today to educate people about traffic safety and housing.

The Leadership Academy on Sustainable Communities aims to equip residents and community leaders in the three neighboring cities to be the next generation of leaders in Orange County on active transportation, transit housing affordability, and food access.

The training, open to all interested parties, will take place on Friday, July 28th and Saturday the 29th. To RSVP, click here. Deadline to apply is July 15.

The program is being organized with Kidworks, a Santa Ana-based youth-development organization (Streetsblog has written about the group winning federal funding for a protected bike lane), People for Housing, Alliance for a Healthy Orange County and OC PICH. AHOC has led prior leadership development programs around active transportation in Garden Grove, Anaheim, and Santa Ana.
