Foundation in partnership with the University of Michigan Technical Assistance Center and
Leadership Incorporated. The Academy will engage individuals living and working in GN
communities in a unique training program that builds upon their knowledge gained from
years of direct experience serving their communities.
The Leadership Academy is a three-month training program for individuals living and
working in the six target neighborhoods: Southwest, Chadsey/Condon, Brightmoor, Osborn,
Cody/Rouge and Northend. Only five people from each neighborhood will be eligible to
participate in the training program.
The goals of the Leadership Academy are:
To increase the knowledge and skills of individuals who are working to build
communities where children are safe, healthy, educated, and prepared for success.
To create a diverse network of community leaders who collaborate across
neighborhood boundaries to promote the well-being of children.
There are six days of training on the following dates: March 9 and 23, April 6 and 20 and
May 4 and 18, 2013. In addition, optional skill-building workshops will be held on weekday
evenings so that participants can sharpen their planning, organizing and fundraising skills
in key areas.
Participants are expected to complete the following tasks:
Complete a self-assessment form.
Attend the six seminars and, when possible, the skill-building workshops.
Complete homework assignments.
Have fun on this journey of personal and professional growth.
Participants will learn practical knowledge and skills needed to develop effective
organizations and build strong communities.

Participants will receive a small stipend to offset the cost of travel and expenses.

RSVP Now for our Webinar on What’s Next for Long-term Nonprofit Leaders!
Join us on January 30th from 2:00 – 3:00pm ET for The New Lifecycle of Work: What’s Next for Long-term Nonprofit Leaders?, presented by Frances Kunreuther of Building Movement Project, Phyllis Segal of Encore.org, and Stephanie Clohesy of Clohesy Consulting.
As long-term leaders in the nonprofit sector think about life after they leave their current jobs, two things become clear: They are not planning to move into traditional retirement, and they want to continue to contribute to the common good. Based on the report The New Lifecycle of Work: Long-Term Nonprofit Leaders Prepare for their Future, this webinar will explore the implications for all generations of the new, longer work life and the various ways that leaders at all levels can prepare for and navigate this shift.
The authors will review key findings, which reveal that leaders often know what they want, but are not sure how to get it or where they will land. They will also offer examples of leaders who have moved to a new stage of work after exiting, in positions that offer more flexibility and less responsibility, as well as answer participants’ questions about their own paths.
This webinar is geared toward long-term leaders, but will be useful to anyone in a nonprofit leadership position, as well as consultants, funders, and other nonprofit staff.
To RSVP, please visit our registration page.
