Career Development

Career development is the lifelong process of managing learning, work, leisure, and transitions in order to move toward a personally determined and evolving future. These workshops will assist in demystifying search processes, provide information and skills needed to improve and advance in a chosen career path. Career Development is valuable in helping leaders understand how to select strong quality members to be a part of their organizations as well as how to develop and promote internal organizational talent.

Civic Engagement

Civic Engagement means working to make a difference in the civic life of one’s community. These workshops will develop the combination of knowledge, skills, values, and motivation to make that difference. Exceptional leaders understand the community needs and work collaboratively with them to create a well-balanced relationship between all.

Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity refers to the traits and characteristics that make people unique and Inclusion refers to providing equal access to opportunities and resources for people who might otherwise be excluded or marginalized. These workshops will offer a better understanding of others with differing abilities, backgrounds, ethnicities, genders, etc. and emphasize the benefits of being inclusive to all types of people. Diversity and Inclusion serve as the foundation of a strong leader because it helps you to better understand your community and ultimately create a more equitable organization.


Wellness is the state of being in good health: mentally, physically, and emotionally. These workshops are designed to teach you strategies and techniques, how to engage and motivate you to make healthy choices, and incorporate wellness into your daily life. Wellness is a key element in the success of an organization. This helps leaders promote wellness and encourage a healthy work-life balance for its members which in turn creates a stronger organization.
