Mission

Matching Need with Know How

Description

Community Leadership Program: Western Connecticut Leadership (WCL) Description: WCL is a leadership program that was started in 2012 in partnership with community volunteers. Targeted toward proven leaders and accomplished professions who live or work in the Foundation’s region, WCL is a nine-session program that provides in-depth understanding of state and local issues, and community needs. The goal of WCL is to match need with know-how and connect graduates with local nonprofit organizations to serve on boards and as volunteers. Session topics include Arts and Culture, Aging and Livable Communities, Civic Engagement, Economic Development, Education, Environment, History and Human Services. The program is a true partnership between Foundation staff and program participants. Each year a planning team of alumni work with the staff to plan all aspects of the nine session program.
