RESIDENT LEADERSHIP TRAINING PROGRAM
Our Resident Leadership Training Program empowers you to identify strength-based leadership skills within yourself and others, bridge generational divides and develop greater trust and connection amongst others, and transfer vision into reality.
About The Program
The goal of the program is to hone the strengths of Waterbury residents, develop concrete leadership skills, and increase their sense of being agents of change. This philosophy of engaging residents to establish positive relationship allows community to solve its own problems, obtain resources and support, and influence change.
