2018 Wheaties Academy Application
Thank you for your interest in Wheaties Academy! We have two spots that have opened up for the 2018 Academy. Applications for these two spots will be accepted through January 19, 2018. Participants will be notified on January 20, 2018 and are asked to commit by January 22, 2018. Plan on 20 to 30 minutes to complete the application.
This innovative grassroots leadership program provides dedicated community members across generations and geographies with the inspiration and the skills to turn ideas into action from the ground up. With support of mentors [Wheaties graduates] and other community members, participants work together and learn how to creatively address challenges in Wheat Ridge by focusing on possibilities.
Academy participation includes: 5 highly interactive sessions, a mandatory overnight retreat, happy hour, optional storytelling workshop and a continuation celebration. In addition to readings and assignments, participants will work together on activities including a community project between sessions. Plan on 10 to 15 hours a month including sessions.
Over the course of five months, each participant will develop a personal action plan in support of a local interest, complete a team community project, expand connections with community leaders and create strong relationships with other Wheaties for an action-capable peer group.
The cost to participate is $300. This includes meals, materials and lodging. If you would like to participate but cannot afford the tuition, please let us know by checking the box at the end of the application. Limited financial assistance is available for qualifying participants and does not impact eligibility or application status.
Wheaties Academy runs January 23 through June 21, 2018. Participants are expected to attend all sessions. Sessions are typically Tuesday evenings from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm and Saturday mornings from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.
