OVERVIEW

Leadership is a journey often mistaken for a destination.

Our goal is to inspire and equip community members to embark on the journey of leadership development. We provide community organizing and leadership development training with the goal in mind of supporting civic engagement year-round. This is our Leader’s Journey 365 model. In addition, we engage the whole family from children to community elders through our intergenerational approach of community-building. These efforts will have a cascading effect as community members lead change not only for a particular issue or when casting a ballot but throughout their lifetime as change agents in our community.
