 Boca Raton, FL – Scott Hansel, CEO of Community Partners of South Florida, works every day to change the odds for communities. His organization dedicates themselves to addressing the strategic areas of mental health for children and families, housing accessibility, and building stronger support systems within communities. They know that to help residents, they need to change surrounding socioeconomic factors that stand in their way. Now, Hansel and the Community Partners team will have another tool in their belt once Hansel completes the NeighborWorks Achieving Excellence Program, a collaboration with Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government.   

The NeighborWorks Achieving Excellence Program is a performance-driven program that addresses organizational and community challenges. Participants benefit from one-on-one executive coaching, focused peer support and cutting-edge curriculum while applying their newly acquired skills and knowledge to their organizations. Hansel will use these new skills for the organization’s work toward ensuring equity, exploring emerging opportunities for cross-sectoral collaboration, and addressing mental health obstacles to achieve healthier neighborhoods.  

Hansel, one of 52 high-performing leaders selected from across the United States for the program, is the only CEO from South Florida. 

“Now more than ever, nonprofit leaders must be ready to identify and embrace emerging opportunities that will improve the health and economic mobility of the people they serve,” said Hansel. “Learning from the top leaders around the country about how they have driven performance and outcomes and become more resilient will benefit Community Partners of South Florida and our long-term sustainability immensely.”
