Peer Voice Project
Peer Voice Project:
A year-long transformational leadership program for peers.
The Peer Voice Project incorporates practices that will strengthen your ability to increasingly step into leadership roles with confidence, along with tools and support to successfully achieve your personal and organizational visions.
The Peer Voice Project is a hybrid program, consisting of four interactive in-person gatherings, five online learning modules, and one webinar. Some topics include: leadership styles, communication skills, social justice, team building, grant writing, event organizing, advocacy, self-care, and healing-centered leadership. Participants will have the hands-on experience of building a community or agency based project of their choice. Leadership mentoring is also available throughout the year with Peer Voice Project Coordinator, Christina Carney.
Eligibility requirements: lived experience with recovery (you do not have to be certified or working to apply) and access to a computer for eLearning.
Completion requirements: complete all eLearning modules and attend all gatherings.
Application will open on February 3, 2020.
