Two weeks ago we announced that we reimagined and reshaped our Community Advocates Leadership Academy.
We are pleased to announce that the application period is now open for our 2020 cohort. We encourage you to learn more about this program, apply, and share this announcement with your network.
The revised CALA program will bring together and train a diverse community of changemakers across the public, private, and nonprofit sectors who want to support the protection of our natural environment while increasing the power of a greater diversity of people, including women and people of color, in the conservation movement.
The 6-month program and associated alumni program provides a foundation that participants can leverage throughout their career of public service. Graduates of the program serve as mentors for future participants, can serve on our new CALA Advisory Board, and are supported by the CALA network to attain leadership roles.
We hope you will learn more about this program, consider applying, and share this announcement with your network. Together with your support, CALA will grow a diverse and inclusive community of leaders who will be a powerful force for the environment and equity in San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties.
