CLA Detroit is a two-year leadership development program rooted in the Ignatian tradition. It strives to develop a cohort of leaders who can bring the dynamics of faith and justice to their families, co-workers, and communities. Ideal candidates will have a sincere desire to contribute to the development and well-being of others and have a heart for service—particularly for addressing the unmet needs of those in Detroit.
If you are an emerging leader in your mid-20s to late-30s, eager to learn tools to improve your effectiveness as a leader, and willing to put your spirituality into action in service to others, then CLA Detroit is the program for you! Cohort members meet monthly to interact with seasoned professionals and reflect on the intersections of career, family, faith and leadership. Participants must commit to monthly meetings, an annual weekend retreat, a capstone project, and community service.
