Laridae and United Way of Peterborough & District are announcing that they will bring back Laridae’s popular Leadership Development Program in 2022, extending their strategic partnership to increase community capacity in the non-profit sector.
Enrollment is open now until January 26, 2022. Spaces are limited. Scholarships are available for leaders of local small- and medium-sized non-profit organizations.
Building on Success
Over the last few years, Laridae has guided leaders from over 40 organizations through its online, interactive Leadership Development Program. Grounded in Laridae’s extensive experience providing guidance to organizations in the non-profit sector, and the team’s years of experience leading online training, this program has proven to be a hit.
In response to the positive feedback of participants — and to the ongoing demand for this unique kind of support — Laridae and United Way Peterborough & District have decided to offer the program again in 2022.
Non-profit leaders of small and medium-sized organizations will again have the opportunity to strengthen leadership skills, increase their capacity, and build community.
Danielle Rocheleau, CEO of Laridae, echoed the excitement of the recent graduates, “We are so pleased to be continuing our partnership with United Way Peterborough for a third year to make our Leadership Development Program accessible to even more leaders in the City and County of Peterborough. Together, we continue working towards our shared vision of supporting local non-profit organizations and building capacity across our community.”
