FOCUS St. Louis is now recruiting for the Fall 2016 sessions of two of its civic leadership programs: Coro Women In Leadership and Emerging Leaders.
The Coro™ Women In Leadership (WIL) program is a five-month, part-time training program that provides women the opportunity to refine their personal and professional leadership competencies, learn about the St. Louis community, and connect with other women from diverse backgrounds. Graduates of the program gain improved leadership effectiveness to apply to their personal and professional lives, an enhanced ability to network within the community, and the access to resources to produce results. Nominations (and self-nominations) are due by Friday, July 22, and the program runs from September to December. Click for more details.
The Emerging Leaders program offers a select group of St. Louis’ young and talented professionals (ages 22-35) the opportunity to receive training to develop leadership and management skills. Participants will also gain a better understanding of the inner workings of the St. Louis community, a chance for personal growth and self-assessment, exposure to volunteer involvements, and an expanded network of peers. Applications for this program are due by Monday, Aug. 8, with sessions beginning in September. The time commitment involves six sessions, held on Monday evenings at the FOCUS office.
