From meetings with the next generation of leaders to discussions about real life issues, ICBI encourages participants to ask tough questions.

ICBI Graduate Stories

"As a graduate of your (ICBI) Pilot Program, I have to say again how honored I am that you chose Otterbein as one of the neighborhoods. Not only did I get to know a couple other neighborhoods a little more intimately but you armed me with so much great info to become a better leader for my neighborhood. You had so many great teachers, the food was delicious, every time and you gave me a great binder of material to always refresh my leadership skills. I will always be grateful for this opportunity and I hold INRC very high. You truly are neighborhood minded!" - Tim Barton, Otterbein Neighborhood Association

"The training at INRC is so valuable to the growth of Indianapolis. I connected with so many leaders throughout the city. I am excited to use all of the skill sets I've learned." – Cynthia Hooks
