John T. Gorman Foundation leadership development program call for applicants

The Maine DOE is encouraging educators and other interested parties to apply for the John T. Gorman Foundation’s new leadership development program in Maine announced this past June.

The John T. Gorman Fellowship program for nonprofit and public sector professionals aims to help participants become more results-focused and build the vision, confidence, and competence required to advance change and improve the lives of vulnerable people in Maine. Through a series of six two-day seminars starting in March 2015, up to 12 Fellows from across the state will come together to reflect on their current leadership styles, explore new skills and ideas, and learn how to apply these new lessons within their own organizations, systems, and communities.

Potential applicants should have experience working in one or more of the Foundation’s four priority areas: improving educational achievement for young children, promoting successful adult transition for vulnerable older youth, helping struggling parents to support their families and enabling more low-income seniors to age in place.

The application deadline is Sept. 19. An application as well as a brief description of the Fellowship, curriculum overview and other information can be found here or by contacting Foundation Program Assistant Lauralee Raymond at fellowship@jtgfoundation.org or 518-6784.
