We are delighted to be launching the brand-new LEAD Programme, a project supported by the European Union’s PEACE IV Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB) and match funded by the Department of Rural and Community Development in Ireland and The Executive Office in Northern Ireland.
This exciting new initiative is a capacity building project to develop the leadership and enterprise skills of women in Mid Ulster who have the potential to become leaders in their community organisations.
The project will build cross community collaboration and support across Mid Ulster by supporting 16 women who have the potential to be community leaders, to develop their leadership and enterprise skills, to help them build relationships and gain greater levels of cultural awareness, leaving a lasting legacy for both the participants and their wider communities.
As well as participating in a series of masterclasses covering topics such as Creative Problem Solving, Engaging with Communities, Mobile Movie Making and Team Building, participants will also take part in a cross border visit and a special masterclass delivered by the William J Clinton Leadership Institute at Queen’s University Belfast. All participants will also receive a mobile movie making kit that will enable them to create a video diary of their experiences and that they can use within their community organisations.
The project, which is free for participants, is now recruiting and will kick off in late March 2020 at Dungannon Enterprise Centre.
If you are a community organisation with staff or volunteers who would benefit, or if you would like to become more involved in community leadership, give us a call on 028 87 723 489 to find out more and register for your place.
