2017-2018 Alumni Program
The alumni program continues and extends the first year program. It is open to alumni of Leadership Calgary, Leadership Edmonton or the Human Venture Introductory Intensive Workshop who want to build capacity for assessing, integrating and creating high quality resources, at all levels. Guides will support participants in a learning circle structure. For both guide and participant, the learning circles are an effective way of engaging with the material and building a supportive learning community.
The class will work on assessing and exploring the leading edge in various disciplines or lines of inquiry. By making time for this research and sharing information with others who are also exploring the same territory, participants will develop the necessary supports to sustain them and to facilitate an ongoing process of strategic learning and development. Participants can tailor their learning to apply to their life situations. Although this type of learning requires a sustained commitment to integrate initially, with ongoing nurturing it becomes part of how participants naturally attend to the information around them.
- capacity to learn from history and current events
- ability to assess sources of information for quality
- ability to diagnose sources of ignorance and error
- striving skills, tenacity and resilience
- sense of responsibility for challenges and desire to “go to the trouble”
- capacity to contribute effectively to family/work/ community problem solving
- capacity to challenge the status quo when better is possible
These are core life competencies that will benefit you wherever you go, and assist in whatever you choose to do in life.
Classes run from 9 am – 4 pm.

Program Team Positions
If you have kept up with the formal programs in the last three years, and are ready for a challenge, we would like to give you an opportunity to join the program team, designing and delivering the curriculum for the year. This is an intensive learning opportunity well suited for those who are interested in moving towards an associate designation. Distance learners can participate on the program team via our distance learning technology.
