Women's Community Leadership Initiative

Candidates for the WCLI Class of 2017 will be notified by the first week of December.

The Women’s Community Leadership Initiative (WCLI) offers up to 30 women the chance to unlock their potential to make a difference; through knowing their community better, meeting community leaders and understanding local channels of decision-making, and practicing and refining their own leadership skills. WCLI is open to women of diverse backgrounds; it is offered from January to June, and tuition is covered.

WCLI begins in January and ends in June each year.  Sessions are typically every other Wednesday evening from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., with a light dinner included. A small child care stipend is available for participants who need to pay for childcare.  Classes will be held at various locations throughout the community. Additional project meeting time will also be necessary.
