Family Leadership & Empowerment

Our Family Leadership program identifies adult caregivers from each community who have leadership qualities and provides them with leadership and advocacy training as a cross-site cohort. These “leaders-in-training” participate in an annual Family Leadership Summit, which is a full day of leadership training co-facilitated by Smart staff and partners. They participate in leadership and advocacy skills training and activities year-around where they learn how to support, mentor and advocate for others in their communities.
