In January, Kansas Alumni held a two day Excellence in Leadership retreat called “Strengthen” – which featured a local veteran leadership trainer, Chester Owens. From this event participants have committed to a yearlong Learning Community focused on the DeVos five core values.
Chicago Alumni recently started a Student Leadership Initiative called CHIL. The selected cohort is comprised of youth ages 15-18. The program is modeled after the Grand Rapids Initiative for Leadership youth training (GRIL-U). These youth will complete their training in the spring.
