What do you do during a year in the MALI program?

Individuals participate in the MALI program free of charge. The MALI curriculum is anchored by an opening two-day retreat and six all-day seminars spread over a twelve-month period. Each of the seminars includes an inspirational speaker(s) or topic, practical information and an opportunity for participants to share and discuss their current work. The program year starts with activities that help bond the group, identify the leadership styles, the particular skills and needs of each of the participants. Early content covers how things work (such as local government, foundations, corporations), and addresses working effectively in an environment outside of a culturally specific organization or activity. As trust builds, participant confidence and a shared vocabulary develop over time; the material becomes more complex and hands-on and integrates prominent mentors and faculty members with the experiences of the participants. Toward the end of the program year, hands-on collaborative activities are developed and implemented. The primary activity is a service project involving professionally-facilitated peer consultations with organizations in another city. The Mini Grant program is the final hands-on opportunity in which participants can choose to compete in a grant proposal process for a project of their choice.
