Kansas Community Leadership Enterprise
The Kansas Community Leadership Enterprise (KCLE) is designed to come alongside Kansas communities, in collaboration with leaders and community members, to discuss area and develop community-driven solutions. There will be up to 240 at the six summits across the state representing health, education, faith, family, welfare, business and foundations. Our goal is to bring together key leaders within the community to identify common problems and a plan to carry out workable solutions.

Training Provided by the Center for Neighborhood Enterprise
The Center for Neighborhood Enterprise (CNE) empowers neighborhood leaders to promote solutions that reduce crime and violence, families, revitalize low-income communities, and create economic enterprise. CNE expert staff, led by Robert Woodson Sr., has provided training and technical assistance to a broad range of more than 2,600 leaders of grassroots organizations in 39 states. CNE is headquartered in Washington D.C. It partners with the U.S. Department of Justice to implement Violence Free Zones which have reduced violence among six cities across the nation. CNE has provided its financial literacy program to more than 26,000 adults nationally. It assembled task forces of the most effective grassroots leaders across the country to advise Congress, laying the groundwork for welfare reform and the Charitable Choice legislation that facilitates partnership between government and faith-based organizations.
