2018 Application
About Leadership for a Future
Leadership for a Future (LFAF) provides a community training environment for emerging leaders from community groups, labor unions, and the religious community. It also provides an opportunity for leaders from diverse groups and backgrounds to forge relationships and networks that will benefit themselves and their organizations throughout their careers.

In addition to obtaining information about Rhode Island's history, culture, economics and politics, leaders in the program will share their experiences and learn from each other. This process will create a powerful, committed, diverse network of graduates who have taken the time to understand and know each other. This network is critical and necessary if the shared goals of economic and social justice for all our citizens are to be achieved.

The 2018 LFAF program year will consist of one MANDATORY overnight retreat and ten (10) Monday evening sessions. The retreat will run from 5:00 PM on Friday, February 23rd to 5:00 PM on Saturday, February 24th.

The Monday sessions will run from 4:30 PM to 8:30 PM (including dinner) and will be held at the Institute for Labor Studies & Research located at 1540 Pontiac Ave, Suite-A, Cranston, RI 02920. Sessions will be held approximately three times a month through May.

To be eligible, individuals must:
- commit to the MANDATORY overnight retreat
- commit to attending 8 out of the 10 sessions
- be able to provide a written reference/ recommendation letter
- submit this completed application and recommendation letter by the application deadline of: JANUARY 12, 2018
