The Children’s Action Alliance (CAA) Leadership Academy is for people interested in learning how to be effective advocates for children and families in their community and around the state.

The ten‐session Leadership Academy is free, but is limited to only 15 participants.  The program is designed to be interactive, comprehensive and rewarding with a curriculum that ranges from leadership skills to thoughtful analysis of public policy.  Through the program, you will build your leadership, advocacy and communication skills and learn how to bring children and their families to the forefront of policy in order to create change.

In addition, each participant will design an individual community improvement project and, with guidance from CAA staff and advisors, will design and present a plan to tackle their policy issue.

All sessions (except the Lobby Day at the Legislature and Graduations) will be held at the Children’s Action Alliance office, located at 4001 N 3rd St, Suite 160 in Phoenix (just south of Indian School Road).  See the class schedule for details on dates and times.

CAA is accepting applications until Friday, December 6, 2013.  Click here to download the application.  For more information, contact Amy Kobeta at (602) 266‐0707 ext 202 or akobeta@azchildren.org.
