ICAA’s ELITE Program

ELITE is a great opportunity for Community Action staff looking to grow their leadership skills. There is an 8-9 month commitment and participants meet monthly through a combination of on-line Zoom meetings (video-conferencing) and in-person gatherings (when feasible).  Learn more about Community Action operations with other staff across the state!

The Emerging Leaders’ Institute for Training and Excellence curriculum was developed by the national Community Action Partnership to be a resource for State Associations and Community Action Agencies that want to formalize their Emerging Leader development efforts.  ICAA has customized the curriculum to include the most up-to-date and pertinent information impacting Community Action.
