Changing the world is hard – Children’s Action Alliance is here to help.
CAA’s Leadership Academy is a program for everyday Arizonans who have a passion for making a difference for children and families and want to learn more about how to make positive change in their own neighborhoods, workplaces, faith congregations, community groups, or local or state governments.
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.
Because of the intensity of the program, attendance for all classes is required.
Applications are now being accepted  for the 2017 class. The deadline is December 15, 2016.
Please contact Julie Bacon at JBacon@azchildren.org  or at (602) 284. 2763 with any questions.
