Family Leadership Training

Leadership Training Institute

FLTI is a program created with families and for families. The curriculum equips families with knowledge and skills to support their engagement with systems at the individual, community, and policy level. Once accepted, emerging family and community leaders participate in a 20 week training that integrates personal and child development, leadership skill development, civic literacy, and civic engagement. The learning experience utilizes a proven implementation model grounded in diversity, shared leadership, and respect for the unique assets of each community. 

FLTI is a family civics initiative modeled after the Connecticut Commission on Children’s curriculum that features five components:

  • A community building retreat
  • 10 sessions that focus on personal leadership development
  • 10 sessions that focus on the civic process and change
  • A Day at the Capitol 
  • A personally developed community project 

Early Childhood Partners provides annual sessions of FLTI free of charge, with dinner and child care included.
