We are currently accepting applications for Cohort #9
Managers and Supervisors apply today!

The Leadership Academy for Homeless Services was created to provide professional development to new and seasoned managers and supervisors to share best practices to promote excellence and consistency in the quality of care provided to our homeless neighbors. Join us in this 10-week program to learn, network, and have meaningful conversations about experiences in the field.

Upon successful completion of the Leadership Academy, participants will receive CEU’s, a Certificate of Completion, and graduate with the opportunity to participate in future alumni events.

Who should apply?

Cohort #9 is specifically for managers and supervisors. This curriculum was designed for those looking to connect with others, increase knowledge and develop essential skills needed to keep employees motivated, productive, and committed. Participants will focus on areas to help better serve and support staff and hone the basic skills and techniques required for effective leadership.
