We are proud to welcome the fourth cohort of the Leadership Training Institute to the Mediation Center family. These 20 excellent participants will combine their diverse talents and interests into a project for this community while growing in their skills and capacities as leaders. During our networking training last night, the group mapped out their overlapping circles of connections and communities, exciting everyone in realizing the wealth of resources LTI brings together and what an exceptional group of people they are.
Over the course of the next three months, the LTI cohort will have weekly trainings on diversity, coalition building, community organizing, conflict resolution, media strategies, event planning, non-violence, fundraising and grant writing from experts in these fields. The program will culminate in a project for the community organized and executed by LTI. Stay tuned for more news from the group as the program continues.
