Tribal Leadership Program Offered in 2022 | Community


LYONS, Neb. – Emerging Indigenous leaders looking to improve their management skills and work on or near tribal reservations in Nebraska and South Dakota are encouraged to apply for a six month leadership training course.

Hosted by the Center for Rural Affairs in collaboration with Partnership with Native Americans, the 4 Directions Development Program (4D) will run online from January to mid-June 2022. Participants will benefit from the mentorship of a former 4D and support from professional instructors to achieve their goals.

“The Four-Branch Development Program is a key capacity building service designed around a cohort-based model,” said Kristine Flyinghawk, Manager of Indigenous Communities for the Center. “Participants are committed to achieving personal and professional development goals and work with professional mentors and instructors to help them achieve their goals. “

The deadline to apply is Monday, December 20 at 4:30 p.m. For more information, contact Flyinghawk at [email protected] or 605-760-5283.

Reasonable arrangements for people with disabilities and / or people with limited English proficiency (LEP) will be made upon prior request.
