Welcome!

We are SO excited to be on this journey toward a healthy planet and stronger communities with you! Read on for information about next steps:

START DATES
Our first group will start toward the end of January.
There will be 6 cohorts in 2022—one starting every other month (with about 35 people each).

PLEASE BE SURE TO COMPLETE OUR NEW FORM
Please complete this form as soon as possible, and select your first- and second-choice start dates.

WHAT TO DO BEFORE YOU START
Regardless of when you start, our programming will be open and available to all Cool Block members—and of course, you are welcome to participate in any NCSA activities as well as those hosted by our many partner and ally organizations, including your neighborhood councils! We will also be creating an online space for you to connect with each other.

IF YOU BEGIN IN JANUARY
We are offering two training slots for the group that begins in January—Saturday, January 22 in the morning, and Sunday, January 30 in the afternoon.  You will need to attend one of them (via Zoom). The training will last about 4 hours.

You will have a couple weeks to recruit on your block, and then you’ll lead your informational meeting.

CALL FOR COOL BLOCK LEADERS
We have reached our goal of 200 Cool Block leaders—THANK YOU!!! We plan to continue recruiting throughout 2022 for this year and beyond, so please keep spreading the word that we are looking for more Cool Block leaders.

Please do not hesitate to contact Lisa with any concerns, questions, or suggestions at [email protected] or 323.660.2780 (cell).
