 Community Voices develops leaders at the grassroots level. The program is designed to help limited resource and other non-traditional leaders and organizations develop skills to solve problems in their communities. Participants engage in a series of learning experiences and then analyze those experiences to see how they apply to life situations. Community Voices and its companion program, Voices Reaching Vision, were created by The Cooperative Extension Program at North Carolina A&T State University, with a grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.

 

Voices Reaching Visions helps emergent leaders become more effective in reaching their community vision. This program builds on the skills learned in Community Voices. Participants can assess their organization, determine opportunities for community and economic development and learn the skills they need to mobilize financial and human resources for their organization. Participants take an active role in the learning sessions, engaging with a facilitator.
