Applications being accepted for KCNC's Leadership Development Program


October 12, 2019

Applications are being accepted now through Nov. 1 for the Kern County Network for Children’s (KCNC) 2020 Leadership Development Program. Since 1998, hundreds of individuals from organizations throughout Kern County have graduated from the program that serves to achieve three primary goals:

• Educate participants to increase understanding of public issues and human relationships.

• Mobilize participants to learn to lead effectively in areas of community health and well being.

• Help participants network with other citizen action groups with common interests and issues.

The Leadership Development Training Program includes 56 hours of instruction time in nine subject areas: public speaking, time management, community meeting facilitation, strategic planning, conflict resolution, community mobilization, resource development, media/marketing and legislative advocacy.

Sessions are held one Friday per month and begin in January 2020 (with the exception of the first two day class meeting, Thursday, January 30 and Friday, January 31). A non-refundable $120 participant fee to cover the partial cost of class materials, presenter fees and meals is due upon acceptance into the program.
