Recruiting community leaders

It's July, and the streets (and parks) of Victoria are filled with visitors and locals soaking up the warmth and enjoying all of the beauty and excitement that our city offers.

Here at Leadership Victoria, we are preparing excitedly for the 15th class of our Community Leadership Development Program. We phone nearly 200 employers in the area to invite them to support an employee, and we reach out to community activists and volunteers who may want to invest in their own development over the next year.

Our class of 2016 is about half-full right now, and there are three weeks to go until our application deadline. The diversity and quality of applicants is amazing this year - our 15th graduating class will certainly make a big impact on Greater Victoria! I can't wait to see what they get up to in their Community Action Projects.

If you, or someone you know, are looking for a way to get better connected to the community and learn some skills that will help you be an effective organizer and leader, why not make an application?
