As with all worthwhile endeavors, your Leading for Community Impact participant will get out of the program what they put into it. Participants are expected to attend all sessions and complete all assigned work.
Please complete the form below by September 24. There are other excellent applicants who have been waitlisted; another candidate would be pleased to take this spot should you or your participant feel they cannot make the commitment at this time. Please let Leading From Within know ASAP if you cannot commit to prioritizing your participant’s Leading for Community Impact involvement over other work obligations that may arise.
In terms of the commitment expected of you and your Leading for Community Impact participant:
- Please review the program dates below and make sure you are able to support your participants availability. If there is a conflict, please let us know ASAP.
- Participants will be responsible for completing approximately three hours of coursework between monthly sessions.
- By paying for a majority of the cost of the program, generous donors are making a significant investment in you. In addition, your organization is responsible for a payment of $2,000 (if the annual budget of your agency is greater than $1 million) or $1,000 (if it’s less than $1 million) by the start of the program on October 15. Please let us know if you need to arrange a payment plan.

All other sessions will run on Fridays from 9AM-5PM and will be held in-person in Santa Maria -OR- virtually on Zoom depending on the feedback of participants and county regulations regarding COVID-safety protocols.
