The Urban Leadership Development Initiative (ULDI) is a Strategy of MetroMorphosis seeking to support both emerging and existing leaders working to develop solutions to persistent challenges within urban communities.

MetroMorphosis believes that fellowships are one of the most effective tools for implementing change in urban communities through capacity building and effective leadership training.

This year, MetroMorphosis will select a cohort dedicated to addressing challenges in the northern sector of our city.

Fellows will engage in shared learning experiences and will become strong agents of change that will last beyond the program’s duration. Through ULDI, MetroMorphosis seeks to provide the following skill set:

• Assessing need and opportunity

• Innovative problem-solving

• Communicating vision

• Building coalitions

• Developing working teams

• Overcoming challenges

• Community engagement

Participation in the Urban Leadership Development Initiative is open to individuals 18 years of age or older. Since the number of members into ULDI is limited, applicants who are not selected are encouraged to re-apply in subsequent years.

Selected participants will work to collectively identify and solve persistent challenges facing North Baton Rouge.

Participants will be chosen by the ULDI selection committee based upon the information completed in this application. The committee will be seeking representation from a cross-section of the community who have an interest or desire to make a substantial impact on urban communities based on the skill set previously mentioned. These leaders and potential leaders will be active in business, education, the arts, religion, government, law,media, labor, community-based organizations, ethnic and/or minority groups, and will reflect the diversity of the community.

ULDI Fellows are expected to be present and fully prepared for each session of the Fellowship. The first 3 sessions of the Fellowship contain foundational information on which the rest of the Fellowship rests and are therefore mandatory. Sessions are held every 2nd Saturday of the month from June 2019 until April 2020.
