It is with much pleasure and enthusiasm that I [Simon Guteng] announce our summer 2009 international leadership training program titled “Grassroots Advocacy Leadership Training for International Deaf and Hard of Hearing Individuals”, June 28-July 5, 2009.
Committed to improving the quality of personal and professional lives of deaf and hard of hearing individuals, the Gallaudet Leadership Institute and Professional Studies (GLIPS), a unit of the College of Professional Studies and Outreach at Gallaudet University, in collaboration with the World Federation of the Deaf (WFD) ensures and assures the following program experiences and outcomes for participants:
1. Thorough understanding of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD)
2. Preparation for working at national level leadership positions
3. Skills to organize grassroots level deaf people into dynamic and productive groups
4. Hands-on training in strategic planning and goal setting
5. Knowledge of leadership styles and identification of one’s own strengths
6. Improvement in human relations skills
7. Enhanced knowledge about emotional intelligence and its uses
8. Certificate of attendance and participation
Participation cost per participant is $910. This cost covers program/registration fee, room, and meal.
It DOES NOT include or cover your airfare, ground transportation within and outside of United States, emergency medical/travel insurance, and pocket money.
The World Federation of Deaf (WFD) will dispatch an announcement letter on the leadership training to all National Associations of the Deaf around the world through their Headquarters. You should anticipate this letter of announcement from WFD. Meanwhile, feel free to use this email letter as a valid and legitimate letter to source funds.
