Orientation

The Community Leadership Development Program kicks off with program orientation. Orientation is an opportunity to meet the staff, volunteers, and peers you will get to work with over the coming months. You will begin the process of understanding what it means to have a 'healthy community' and the interconnectedness of all things. We introduce you to our community and provide you with the resources and information you need to prepare for the months ahead.

Day of Celebration and Reflection

Early in the program we emphasized the need for leaders to practice reflection, to make the subconscious, conscious. On this final learning day, you will reflect on all the work you have done and begin to plan for how you will embed what you have learned into a leadership practice. The skills you have learned are helpful in becoming a strong community leader, but it is you who must take on the responsibility to put these skills into practice.

Graduation

To wrap up the program, we will celebrate together, and see all that we have accomplished.
