Registration for the 2022 Paul G. Duke Academy for Community Leadership and the Paul G. Duke Academy for Community Leadership 2.0 workshops will open soon.
NEW! The Paul G. Duke Academy for Community Leadership 2.0 has been created and designed specifically for experienced executive directors of nonprofit organization and alumni of the Academy. This challenging and intensive Academy is coordinated by the Academy development team and participants. Advanced participants will conduct original research and exchange results via reports and discussion. Participants will help to further develop the foundational agenda for each of the four monthly sessions that will explore nonprofit organizations—based on their backgrounds, experiences, pressing issues and needs—through self-analysis, organizational analysis, guest speakers, best practices, resource review and in-depth discussions. At its conclusion, Academy 2.0 participants will be immersed in the annual Mosaic of Community Leadership Conference, both as participants and as presenters. The new Academy 2.0 is the latest collaboration between the Paul G. Duke Foundation and the Edison State Community College Center for Leadership Development.
The Paul G. Duke Academy for Community Leadership is a series of workshops designed to develop more effective directors, leaders, board members, staff and volunteers of nonprofit organizations. Course topics include the fundamental practices of board recruitment, planning, staffing, budgeting, evaluation, board meetings and community awareness. The classes are designed to help individuals make a difference on their boards and in their community.
The Paul G. Duke Academy for Community Leadership is held annually for five (5) monthly sessions beginning in January and ending in May with the Mosaic Conference. The Paul G. Duke Academy for Community Leadership application form and scholarship information and criteria will be posted when they become available.
The Paul G. Duke Academy for Community Leadership Mentor Program provides an opportunity to work and learn together! Mentoring can be a rewarding experience for both the mentor and the mentee. Mentorships provide the opportunity for feedback, reflection, evaluation and celebration of success. A mentor should ask his or her mentee about what the mentee’s individual and organizational goals are and what they are looking for from the mentoring relationship. Mentees should be clear about what they hope to receive from the mentoring relationship, particularly with respect to individual and organizational goals. These discussions early in the relationship will form the foundation of the work and learning together. Mentoring will start officially at the Mosaic of Community Leadership Conference upon graduation of The Paul G. Duke Academy for Community Leadership and conclude at the conference the following year. Both the mentor and mentee will be asked to evaluate their experience with the mentoring program. Often mentoring relationships informally continue for many years!
The mission of the Paul G. Duke Academy for Community Leadership is to strengthen nonprofit organizations by providing quality educational and training opportunities. The vision of the Paul G. Duke Academy for Community Leadership is to be the growing edge in training and nurturing nonprofit leaders in west central Ohio.
