Arizona Civic Leadership Collaborative

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.)
