Core Program: Annual Leadership Institute-From June through November, CLI participants meet one Saturday a month for classroom instruction. The diverse faculty of community leaders and professionals bring a wealth of resources and connections to the classroom that alumni are able to access after they graduate.

CLI participants practice shared leadership and teamwork by collectively planning and carrying out a community project before graduation. They develop budgets and written requests for up to $1,000 in seed money. A significant amount of learning and personal growth occurs through this essential component of CLI as it's an opportunity to bring community leaders together to foster collaborative relationships.
A certificate of completion is awarded at graduation only to those who attend a minimum of five (5) training sessions and participate in the class project.
