The Network Weaver Learning Program

Network Weaver Learning Program

The Network Weaver Learning Program (NWLP) is a four-month long program designed to support residents in growing their capacity to be effective network weavers (connectors). Participants explore the impacts of history, culture, and systems on communities and the residents living in them. NWLP sessions are interactive, holistic, awareness-building, and embedded in a larger strategy to promote racial and economic equity. As network weavers, participants become important connectors who help their neighbors form purposeful relationships and initiate meaningful self-organized actions that promote equity. Program graduates become part of a community of practice that interacts regularly to share experiences, exchange knowledge, and support each other in the work.

The NWLP is facilitated by experts on equity, leadership development, and network-building. Program cohorts have 15 - 20 participants, and Spanish interpretation is provided.

IMPACT asks for a sliding scale contribution of up to $100 for participation, but no one will be turned away because of inability to contribute financially.

The next session of the NWLP will be in the fall of 2018. For more information, please contact Lanita Whitehurst at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
