How Can My Community Get Leadership Training

Blandin Foundation conducts leadership training only in communities (or groups of communities) that invite us in – it all starts with you and your community. While some of our programs require time and travel, we also have programs that address specific topics right in your home community. 

 

Blandin Community Leadership Program (BCLP

Step 1: Community application

 Submit this inquiry form to let us know your commuity is interested in training.

After our staff has followed up on your inquiry, a group of community members – from businesses, government, religious and educational instutitions, etc. – completes a community application.

Step 2:  Community readiness discussion

Foundation staff meets with community leaders, in your community, to discuss two key questions:

  • Why is this a good time for your community to participate in BCLP?
  • What are two or three issues facing your community and how do you see BCLP training affecting those issues?

Step 3: Selection and Steering Committee

Foundation staff selects communities to participate in the eight-day program – a five-day intensive residential retreat and three follow-up workshops – based on your community’s expressed desire and readiness. We help form a local Steering Committee and select 24 emerging and established leaders who collectively reflect this profile:

  • Actively involved in community life
  • Credible and open-minded
  • Open to risk-taking
  • Passionate about their community's future
  • Willing to work collaboratively to promote healthy community
