The Community Leadership Program is an introduction to community development – taking the IPEP (Immigrant Peer Educator Program) one step further. It focuses on the skills needed to participate in the community and to volunteer within a non-profit.

The program will run for 10 weeks, starting February 11 and finishing April 15, 2021 on Thursday evenings from 5 to 7pm on Zoom.
