Answering the Call (ATC) is a five-session leadership development program open to alumni of service programs.
For one night a week for five weeks, participants come together with fellow servant leaders for small group learning and discussion. Sessions are led by facilitators who we have been selected and trained. There is no pre-work prior to the first session; participants are expected to complete reflection exercises in between each session that will require somewhere between 15 and 45 minutes to complete.
Each program is a series of five sessions over the course of five weeks with some homework in between
To graduate participants are required to:
Attend the first three hour introductory session
Attend at least 3 out of the 4 following 90-min remaining sessions but, we hope you attend all 5 sessions
Session 1: The Learning Journey Begins: Crafting a Personal Leadership Mission Statement
Session 2: Owning Your Shadow Mission & First Spark
Session 3: Why do I Serve?
Session 4: Envisioning the Future
Session 5: Listening for the Call & Special Servant Leader Guest
There is a $50 fee for our program. It is a small but meaningful financial commitment to engaging in this process. We do waive the fee for those with a financial hardship, so please reach out to Shaquanda Brown (firstname.lastname@example.org) to explore a fee waiver.
Please note: If you are an alumnus of a service program who is already 100% certain that you plan to run for office, this program may not be for you. We encourage you to reach out to us directly to explore how we might support your leadership development.
