The Indianapolis Recorder Newspaper, in partnership with Leadership Indianapolis, is seeking nominations for emerging community leaders to participate in two outstanding civic leadership development programs. If you or someone you know is interested in learning, growing, and connecting in the field of leadership – this is the perfect opportunity.

Of those nominated, two scholarships (valued at $1000.00) for Leadership Indianapolis’ LEAD program and one scholarship (valued at $600.00) for Opportunity Indianapolis will be awarded.

LEAD is a skills development program, offering participants the opportunity to build their collaborative civic leadership skills and become more effective in their community work.  Participants learn how to build trust, motivate team members, and manage conflict while also building their own confidence to lead.  LEAD is ideal for both emerging and experienced leaders – anyone who wants to build their effectiveness as a civic and organizational leader.

Program Dates:  5 consecutive Fridays – September 18, September 25, October 2, October 9, October 16

Participants hop on a bus for a field trip around town to meet with community leaders and learn about opportunities for getting more involved in addressing civic issues. This program is perfect for people who are new to the city or new to their jobs and want to get engaged in community leadership opportunities.

Program Date: April 2016
