Dinowigehmin – Aboriginal Leadership Program (ALP)

Anishinabek Employment and Training Services is planning to deliver the next Aboriginal community-focused leadership program starting in January 2021.  The Aboriginal Leadership Program (ALP) is open to all emerging leaders regardless of age.  ALP will be implemented based on the Leadership Thunder Bay model within the framework of The Seven Grandfather Teachings, The Medicine Wheel as well as potentially the The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People or other related texts or videos.  The program is designed to contribute to participant’s cultural, spiritual, mental, physical and emotional wellbeing.    In order to accommodate all learners, there are plans to integrate both classroom (inside and outside) delivery as well as online delivery (via ALP Online Learning).   If interested in being on a waiting list, please email aets@aets.org with the subject heading of "Aboriginal Leadership Program".
