T4T is for emerging and seasoned leaders, residents who have been involved in community building OR individuals who work for an organization that supports community development. T4T participants must be able to attend 5 monthly learning sessions, connect to a coaching partner between sessions, co-facilitate another leadership training session (Leading Together), and commit to teaching other leaders after they graduate the program. See the program flyer for more information.

We have a limited number of seats and would like to extend the opportunity for you to nominate candidates you think would be a good fit for this opportunity. This flyer gives more information about the program, meeting times, and expectations. Please share it with any potential nominees.

Applications to the program are due April 30th and can be submitted electronically by completing the application HERE. Please share this link and flyer with those individuals you wish to nominate.

Candidates will be interviewed and selected by the end of May for a program start date of June 8th. – Interviews start soon; apply now!

Please let me know if you have any questions about the T4T program or how to nominate an individual.

Thank you for spreading the word!
