We want to invite you to register for the Community Scholar Leadership Development Program beginning this Fall. It is offered by I-LEAD, founder of ACE and the Partnership Site program, which has been training grassroots community leaders for more than 20 years. The Leadership program consists of eight, 90-minute workshops, delivered via zoom on a monthly basis. We will talk about familiar leadership skills such as goal setting and team building, but approach these topics through a unique lens of personal growth. The workshops focus on strengthening participants’ skills in the leadership arenas of mindfulness, compassion, visioning, willpower and resilience. 

Workshop time will be used to introduce a practice(s) that corresponds to these leadership arenas for participants to try out during the month. Prior to the next session, participants will meet 1:1 (via zoom) with a program coach from I-LEAD staff to review the practices and together discuss observations, reflections, and questions to date. The subsequent workshop will begin with a facilitated period of sharing and reflection about participants’ experiences with the practice for that month.

I-LEAD is providing a full scholarship for this program to all Harcum Community Scholars and a copy of the associated guidebook The Inward Sun by David Castro. With full participation, students will earn a Leadership Certificate from Harcum. While not credit bearing, the Leadership Certificate is a valuable credential to add to your professional profile.  

Given the Monday-Thursday evening class schedules of ACE students, we will plan to meet on Fridays from 6-7:30 pm. Please register here for the Leadership Program. An I-LEAD team member will reach out to each person who signs up to discuss the program further and answer any questions you may have. In the meantime, please reach out to [email protected]. We look forward to meeting you!
