Nominations for Child Welfare Leadership Institute Training
The National Child Welfare Leadership Institute is soliciting nominations of public and Tribal midlevel child welfare managers to participate in a leadership development program. This is a rare and exciting opportunity for States, counties, and Tribes to develop leadership potential among their midlevel management staff.
During the training, participants will develop leadership skills and formulate action plans to lead their organization. Training will be based on a "positive change" initiative relating to best practice models in response to current critical issues in child welfare. The program will include two residential leadership development sessions: a 5-day session in April 2008, followed by 3 months of transfer of learning, followed by a 3-day session.
All costs, except transportation to and from the residential sessions, will be funded by a Children's Bureau grant. Nominees must have the endorsement and support of their nominating organizations.
Child welfare executives and Tribal leaders are encouraged to nominate promising midlevel managers.
