The Community Economics & Leadership Program (CELP) is a four-month intensive leadership and capacity building program that enhances a leader's ability to understand the economics of their community and develop human-centered design skills to maximize their leadership strengths. This program is an investment in mindset change that creates meaningful perspectives. The experience develops resilience and cultivates an improved understanding of the ongoing community context to solve problems and make the right decisions.
Why is the Program Needed?
- Most practitioners agree that the best way to accelerate innovation is by nurturing community networks and focus them on new ideas and next steps. Our objective is to develop and guide open networks of collaborators to build prosperity, strengthen relationships and intentionally build networks of economic activity.
