ELI is a year-long leadership development program designed to build and expand the capacity of future leaders within New York’s Community Action Network. This collaborative learning experience incorporates:

  • Formal training to build skills and knowledge
  • Peer networking opportunities to build local and statewide relationships
  • Discussions surrounding current and relevant books chosen by the group and/or leaders within Community Action

Participants will explore their leadership styles, develop leadership aptitude and empower themselves and others. By equipping Emerging Leaders with these critical skills, NYSCAA is ensuring that Community Action Agencies are able to continue the important work of helping people, changing lives – our mission that impacts hundreds of thousands of low and moderate-income New Yorker's every year.
