The Arizona Civic Leadership Collaborative serves as a statewide resource and convener for organizations interested and involved in strengthening civic leadership.
The collaborative may:
- Provide technical assistance to entities wanting to establish leadership programs;
- Convene leaders of local leadership and civic organizations and programs to strengthen curricula, share best practices, recruit participants, and place graduates;
- Work with community colleges, universities, and other educational institutions to include civic leadership in a wide variety of programs.
(More information for members of the Collaborative, including downloadable materials.)
