This year marks the 30th Anniversary of our beloved Community Leadership Program. While 2020 has brought numerous challenges to our community, it also provides us with an opportunity to re-imagine and reshape what a more resilient, inclusive, and healthy future could look like. For this, we need strong community leadership in all shapes and sizes. CLP is made for times like this. What better way to celebrate its 30th year than by engaging in building a better future?
Choose your engagement below. We realize that the challenges of 2020 are impacting everyone and that time is precious. Therefore, we want to make it easy for you to engage in this collective effort to strengthen our community in whatever way fits best for you. Engage in one activity or all of them. As we do for the traditional in-person CLP experience, we will provide you with the latest information, tools, and connections to support your engagement and activate your leadership capabilities.
Add a new tool, new friends, and a project experience to your leadership tool box! We are partnering with the Agile Strategy Lab to provide customized training on the Strategic Doing framework. An agile approach to getting big things done, Strategic Doing teaches people how to form collaborations quickly, move them toward measurable outcomes and make adjustments along the way.
Revisit the topics and organizations you were introduced to through CLP, and hear how they have been impacted by the events of 2020. This series includes 9 online sessions that occur on the second Friday of each month (the normal day for CLP). Sessions will be from Noon – 1 pm, with an optional social time to follow. Hear from local sector leaders about how they are overcoming today’s challenges, engage in discussion on what a stronger tomorrow could look like, and re-connect with your classmates.
Learn how to become a better ally so you can be a better leader, colleague, friend, and community member. We are partnering with the Humanize My Hoodie Movement to provide you with a customized, facilitated online workshop experience. Participants will gain valuable knowledge to reduce threat perception, identify microaggressions, debunk myths of Black criminality, understand allyship, and the skills to effectively advocate for someone from a marginalized community.
If you don’t have the time and/or have some extra cash on hand, donate your dollars to support this program and grow future community leadership support programs. Most importantly, the CLP Alumni Fund allows us to provide financial assistance and eliminate price as a barrier to participation in future classes.
Monetary donations can be made in any amount.
Donate a day of your time to engage in a day of community service with your CLP peers. We are partnering with the United Way of Johnson & Washington Counties and their Volunteer Center to coordinate various service opportunities.
