Stitch Together CLT
Stitch Together CLT is a free mentorship and community building program
planned and led by leaders from 10 neighborhoods with influencers who they've hand-picked from their communities. This program includes a launch event, six "Stitch Together" Sessions hosted in Charlotte's neighborhoods, and a mentorship project between leaders and their influencers.
Facilitated by the City of Charlotte, the launch event invites community leaders, as experts, to share stories and lessons learned about their challenges, successes, resources and celebrations. A keynote panel of activists in the community and facilitated discussion will address how we can bring together our communities to improve integration and mobility in our City. Attendees will leave the event ready to work on a project with their neighborhood leader and have the opportunity to attend additional neighborhood showcases. Six months later, attendees and facilitators will come together again for a reconnection and celebration.
Stitch Together CLT has three objectives:
1. Bring together neighborhood leaders from different parts of Charlotte to share resources, successes, challenges, stories and fellowship.
2. Create mentoring relationships between neighborhood leaders and the next generation of influencers in their neighborhoods.
3. Define what a "neighborhood leader" is for different ages and generations to help expand leadership in neighborhoods.
