2015 Leadership Academy
Changing the world is hard – Children’s Action Alliance is here to help.
CAA is now accepting applications for the 2015 Leadership Academy, a program for everyday folks who have a passion for making a difference but don’t have the necessary skills or connections. This interactive and practical program is designed for people interested in learning how to be effective advocates for children and families in their community and around the state. Through the Leadership Academy, participants will build their leadership, advocacy and communication skills and learn how to bring children and their families to the forefront of policy in order to create change.
The nine-session Leadership Academy is free, but is limited to only 15 participants. Each participant designs an individual community improvement project and, with guidance from CAA staff and advisers, will present a plan to tackle their policy issue. The class is scheduled on the weekends so people living outside of Maricopa County can attend; travel and lodging stipends are available.
All sessions are held in Phoenix – see the class schedule for details on dates and times. Because of the intensity of the program, attendance for all classes is required.
Please contact Amy Kobeta at (602) 266-0707 x 202 or LA@azchildren.org with any questions or concerns. We look forward to receiving your application before the December 19th deadline.
