Leadership Initiatives

Every community has untapped leaders and leadership potential. Our leadership initiatives build capacity in everyday people to organize, facilitate, and drive sustainable change in their communities.


Everyday Leaders

Everyday Leaders is an innovative approach to leadership development that foregrounds authentic community engagement, collective leadership, and intergenerational collaboration to support a network of emerging leaders in gaining the tools, knowledge, and skills to address community problems.

This initiative creates a space of collective learning and co-creation in which a multiracial and intergenerational cohort can reimagine authentic relationships and build on community assets together.
The Everyday Leaders curriculum includes affinity-group work, independent reflection, interactive and experiential learning that complements “classroom” instruction.

Inaugural cohort launching Fall 2023 in Hartford, Connecticut.


Community Changemakers

Community Changemakers is a year-long learning opportunity for a cohort of leaders to deepen their knowledge, skills, and readiness for leading inclusive, participatory, and equitable community change by implementing our Dialogue to Change approach.

The program includes a five-day in-person learning retreat, ongoing skill-building webinars, and coaching on community organizing, dialogue facilitation, and action planning for sustainable change.

New cohort launching Fall 2023.
