GALEO INSTITUTE FOR LEADERSHIP (GIL)

The GLCDF has implemented the GALEO Institute for Leadership (GIL) to focus upon leadership development of the Latino community across our state. As part of the GALEO Institute for Leadership, we have formed a strategic partnership with the University of Georgia’s Fanning Institute to expand and develop our joint efforts for their Community Leadership Program

The curriculum being utilized for the GALEO Institute for Leadership will be the University of Georgia’s Fanning Institute 4th Edition CLP (revised 2006). The curriculum provides eight modules designed to assist participants in:

Becoming more knowledgeable about themselves, leadership practices and their communities;
Developing skills needed to assist them in becoming stronger community leaders;
Coming together to use their newly acquired knowledge and enhanced leadership skills to address community issues, needs, problems, and challenges;
Exercising leadership by engaging themselves in activities and undertaking projects to improve their communities.
The GIL currently consists of the Fanning Institute’s Community Leadership Program modules coupled with complementary activities to further promote the leadership development of our community leaders. Latinos are a growing segment of Georgia’s community and we have a responsibility to lead.
