Are you interested in making positive changes in your neighbourhood? Have you been active in building local support for making change? Would you like to learn new knowledge and develop new skills to make your efforts even more effective?
If the answers to these questions are YES, YES and YES, you are one of the people we are looking for to join a group of other would-be community leaders in Surrey. We will be selecting up to 25 individuals to participate in a program at Simon Fraser University called Envision Financial Community Leaders Igniting Change (CLIC). The next cohort will get started in January, 2017.
Envision Financial CLIC will build on the existing expertise and knowledge within the communities of Surrey. The education program will include concepts like inclusion, compassion, listening, strategizing, relationship building, self and other awareness, engagement and critical thinking. You will also learn from guest speakers including community leaders, city officials and content experts, as well as from your fellow students.
Registration fee for the CLIC program is $75. If you are unable to pay this fee, please let us know, as we do have financial assistance available. You will need to dedicate approximately 5 hours per week to the program: one 3-hour class (Wednesday evenings 5:00 – 8:00 p.m.) and 2 hours of reading and related commitments between classes. The 12-week program will start on January 25, 2017, and end on April 12, 2017.
Some additional information about last year’s CLIC program is available here.
