realizing what's important,
speaking up about it
and making a difference!

Calling All Leadership Series and Partners-RI Graduates!

You're invited to join the Leadership Graduate Academy! The Academy is a collection of short courses that focus one some of the topics we introduced in the Leadership Series. We've also added related topics that are based conversations we've had in class over the years. As an Academy member, you'll have the opportunity to enroll in as many different courses as you want, and earn a Certificate of Completion for each of them, but class size is limited.

Our next course is about Being a Peer Mentor. Classes will meet four times on Monday afternoons, beginning on Monday, September 25th. Classes run from 1:00-2:30.

** Please Note: You must attend all four classes to receive a Certificate of Completion. Completing the course does not guarantee a Peer Mentor position with our organization, but it is one of the requirements. It's a fun and informative way to learn about what being a Peer Mentor is all about!
