Making a Difference in our Community
Whether your goals are serving on a board, holding an elected office, mentoring a child, or simply leading others for positive change, this program is for you!
The program is comprised of three main elements: a two day (non-overnight) retreat, full-day monthly sessions from October through June, and a variety of community immersion experiences. Attendance and completion of all elements are a requirement for program graduation.
Tentative Program Dates for 2017-18 are:
September 28 & 29 (two day retreat, not overnight)
June 14 (graduation)
The program is $950 per participant. This includes two specialized leadership assessments (Strengthsfinder and the Leadership Practices Inventory), a two-day retreat at La Tourelle, interactive leadership development training sessions, presentations and workshops from a variety of community leaders, a Community Coach, and all meals and training materials.
Including the retreat days, this costs out to approximately $85 per day. We've found this to be commensurate with the costs of other professional development training in our community.
A limited number of scholarships are available. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Please be sure to talk with your employer before you commit to the program. We know many people work very hard and that more and more is being demanded from us each day at our workplaces. However; work with your employer to make participation in this program a priority. Block off the scheduled program days and let your supervisor and co-workers know that you're not available. Employers are making an investment in you by paying for your participation, so remind them of the importance of being at all the related events and training days.
