The director of the Gamaliel Foundation, which assists local community leaders to create, maintain and expand independent, grassroots, and powerful faith-based community organizations, will lead a one-day leadership training from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 8 at the Genesis Heart Institute in Davenport.

Greg Galluzzo, director of the Gamaliel Foundation, will lead the session. The training is a unique opportunity to build upon leadership skills and develop practical tools to affect positive change in your community, notes Quad Cities Interfaith, which is sponsoring the event.

Galluzzo is a nationally recognized leader in faith-based community organizing.

Gamaliel Foundation has more than 50 affiliates in the U.S. and South Africa. Quad Cities Interfaith is a Gamaliel Foundation affiliate.

The Gamaliel Foundation works primarily with congregation-centered community organizations, according to its Web site. These organizations have become powerful forces for change in poor and working class communities. They also work with religious leaders to strengthen congregations.

The foundation provides intensive staff and leadership development programs. The organizations within the network frequently combine to work on national issues affecting housing, transportation and urban sprawl.

Cost for the Quad-City training is $5, which includes lunch and materials.  Reservations may be made through Quad City Interfaith at (563) 322-4910 or qcinterfaith@gmail.com.
