Last call for the Family Leadership Training Institute  
The class starts on Saturday with a full day retreat and then classes meet one night per week. Dinner and childcare are included at no cost.

The Family Leadership Training Institute (FLTI) is a first-of-its-kind family civics program. Program graduates spend more than 120 hours to develop skills needed to become effective leaders in their communities. Once recruited and accepted in to the program, participants attend a 20-week curriculum that integrates personal and child development, leadership training, civic literacy and civic participation skills. The curriculum includes four components: an initial retreat, two 10-week sessions that focus on knowledge about the change process, skill building, and tools of civic engagement; and a community project.

In only 20-weeks, Institute graduates make a significant impact within their communities. Through their community projects they demonstrate that when given civic and leadership
tools, families can guide public policy and decision making directly and indirectly through their actions and commitment to children, youth and the community. Please see for more information!

Arapahoe County Douglas FLTI will begin with a Retreat on January 19th.  For more information, contact Ashleigh Kirk, 720-974-9634 or
