Leadership Training Overview
VALUEUSA conducts face-to-face Leadership Training statewide or local program teams of staff and learners.
Our Leadership Training helps adult learners and staff members from local literacy programs learn to work together to strengthen their program by shifting to a more consumer-driven leadership model. In conducting this training, VALUEUSA works with organizations to bring together learner/staff-member teams from programs to learn from and with each other and to form a mutual support network for learner involvement and leadership.
Programs that have implemented what they learned through our Leadership Training report that there is a level of energy in the program not present beforehand. They also report that by working in partnership with learners for a more consumer-driven operation, learner involvement has enhanced recruitment, retention, resources, and reform.
Programs get tools and information to evaluate and improve their programs. Their clientele will be involved to help achieve this goal.
Also the clients will benefit from this training by learning critical thinking skills, organization structures, priority setting, organizing skills and strategic planning. The great aspect about these skills is they are all transferrable to the workforce and community.
