Fifteen Environmental Leadership Program Southeast Fellows Graduated into Senior Fellowship at the end of their third retreat which took place January 29 - 31, 2010 at the Highlander Center in New Market, TN.
Prior to graduating, the class engaged in a half day coalition building training in a fitting venue as the Highlander Center as for over 70 years been a meeting place for civic engagement among environmental and social change leaders.
The class's last day of training focused on High Engagement Leadership, leading from strengths rather than deficiencies and inviting partnerships and participation rather than assignments and patriarchal expectations.
The cohort of 15 Fellows now joins a community of 447 graduates of ELP's National Fellowship Community and is looking forward to engaging each other and their national network peers in conversations and actions to create significant change in the Southeast.
ELP is grateful for the support individuals have given to this project and we look forward to your continued commitment of increasing the capacity of environmental and social change leaders in the region and throughout the country.
