We know Akron
The AKLF prides itself on knowing Akron from the inside out. We are constantly connecting with leaders and community members so to have our finger on the pulse of what's really going on in the neighborhoods of our city. Through our relational networks we challenge ourselves to have an accurate picture of both the strengths, needs, and opportunities of our communities, as well as the formal and informal networks within these communities. Ultimately, this allows the AKLF to identify overlooked leaders and connect Akron's grassroots to Akron's institutions for the purpose of city-wide development.
