    PARTICIPANT APPLICATION FORM & INFORMATION

Dear Interested Participant:

    We are pleased to announce the 2nd Annual Family Leadership Training Institute (FLTI) of Colorado. The FLTI curriculum is a proven curriculum that inspires, trains and empowers individuals to become effective change agents on behalf of children, youth and families. This opportunity is only offered to 15-20 students that are screened and selected based on their availability and readiness.

    The 20-week FLTI curriculum is based on the premise that the family is a child’s first and most important teacher. Family members are also the best advocates for children and communities. Community leaders including parents, youth and family members, can be effective when they speak out on issues and inform policy-makers, the media, and the community, about the needs of their members.

    FLTI offers a stimulating curriculum that will boost leadership skills to address areas of concern such as accessible child healthcare, the education achievement gap, neighborhood safety, and the significance of parental involvement. Together, class participants will emerge as strong leaders and advocates for all children and their families.

    The curriculum is a full-semester course, featuring three distinct phases. Participants will attend all three phases of training:

    1) A kick-off retreat scheduled for January 2010 to develop group cohesion and define mission.

    2) A 10-week session on leadership, understanding personal history and its impact on perception.

    3) A 10-week session to study politics, policy and media with a Community Project to practice your

    new skills within a community framework.

    Individuals will be selected with consideration given regarding how their participation will enhance diversity,

    strength, and learning for the group as a whole. Interviews will start in Fall 2009.

    Who should apply?

    Parents, teen parents, grandparents, community members and others who wish to improve the lives of children, families and communities. The FLTI course is offered free of charge! Your time, commitment, and a written community project that reflects your passion, is what we ask in return. Please consider whether FLTI is the right opportunity for you at this time.
