Missouri Academy for Leadership & Community Action – There were 10 individuals in the Leadership Academy this year and all have progressed through the courses and portfolio development to graduate. This professional development journey involves a collaborative learning process that incorporates development, mentoring, networking opportunities, and the creation of a portfolio to explore leadership style, aptitude, and empowerment of self and others. The individuals who graduated presented community projects focusing on food insecurity, health, financial empowerment, homelessness, community infrastructure, foster care support, elderly services, and infant care. Many of these projects have already been implemented during the course of the Academy, or will be in the near future.
