Independence Inc. is proud to announce the launch of Community Leadership Academy (CLA). The program provides an interactive training experience for people with disabilities interested in enhancing personal leadership skills and creating change in the community.
CLA is comprised of six sessions. Training curriculum will focus on important topics such as board functions, community engagement, professionalism, disability history, advocacy, and networking. Through this initiative, participants will gain the knowledge and confidence needed to effectively serve on non-profit boards, government committees and coalitions.
Following completion of the program, participants will be recognized at the first-ever Community Leadership Academy Graduation. The event will allow participants to celebrate their accomplishment, exercise their skills and network with local community members interested in recruiting CLA graduates.
