Jackson Hole Conservation Alliance is having our 14th annual Conservation Leadership Institute (CLI) class beginning on Tuesday, September 12th. CLI is an 8-week leadership development program that is offered at no cost to the participant. The goal of CLI is to prepare students to have the skills and knowledge to effectively organize, advocate, and hold local decision-makers accountable for building a better future in conservation. By the end of the course, students will know how to:
- Communicate their position to others, including elected representatives
- Identify, recruit, and lead a grassroots team
- Develop a campaign plan to achieve a specific goal
- Empower others to participate in the civic process
- Incorporate JEDI (Justice, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion) principles into their work
- Use storytelling to inspire action
- Connect advocacy in Jackson Hole to larger movements such as the fight for climate justice
- Approach governmental and policy making processes with confidence
- Identify and execute the best strategies and tactics to reach your goal
If you or someone you know is interested in the Conservation Leadership Institute, mark your calendars for July 7th. Applications will be posted to the Jackson Hole Conservation Alliance website on July 7th by 5pm and will be open until August 7th.
We will be accepting about twenty participants to this year’s class. After August 7th, we will conduct interviews for applicants and have the class solidified by the end of August. This year’s CLI will be held every Tuesday from 6pm-8pm from September 12th to October 31st.
Each class consists of speakers, group projects, readings and open discussion to create effective community leaders. If you have any questions regarding this year’s CLI, please contact Kelsey Persyn, Civic Engagement Manager, at email@example.com .
I look forward to meeting the future leaders of conservation!
