What is the LDI?

The MASSCAP Training Center's Leadership Development Institute was created to establish an internal structure for the development and retention of leaders within the Community Action network and across the human services field.  Our inaugural class of 2017 was a huge success and we're back to offer the Institute again to a new wave of future leaders!

The LDI is designed for mid- to senior-level managers who are interested in identifying, developing, and practicing their leadership and management abilities both personally and professionally to advance their careers.  It includes six sessions led by academic and professional experts in the field, as well as a group CAPstone project to put what you learn to practical use within your organization.
