Family Leadership Training Institute - Class of 2013

The Family Leadership Training Institute, a first-of-its-kind family civics program, today graduated 125 people who completed the community leadership program. Graduates are from Adams, Arapahoe, Denver, Dolores, Douglas, Eagle, Larimer, Mesa and Montrose counties.

Graduates spent more than 90 hours developing skills needed to become effective leaders in their communities. These emerging community leaders participated in a 20-week curriculum that integrated personal and child development, leadership training, civic literacy and civic participation skills.
This year’s graduates will apply their leadership skills in a variety of community projects, such as:
· Community gardening
· Wellness and exercise programs
· Strengthening families through strong dad-child relationships
· Access to training and support for parents who have children with special needs
· Helping teen moms become community leaders
· Early learning and literacy

Graduate ages range from teens to grandparents, and include single parents, aunts, uncles, step-parents, foster and adoptive families. Graduates are active community members concerned about improving systems for children.
