The Arc graduated its first team cohorts from the Champions of Change Learning Series on April 1! The Leadership Team worked with Alonzo Kelly, a nationally recognized Strategic Leadership Partner, to develop Champions of Change exclusively for The Arc to build on and sustain our culture of caring, innovation, empowerment, and acceptance.

Champions of Change was designed to help team members improve their personal and professional development and skills in cultural competency and organizational awareness, critical thinking, effective communication, strategic planning, and more. By investing in our team and fostering their skills, creativity, and passion, we advance our goal to provide the highest quality of services possible for those we serve.

The Leadership Team is so proud of the progress made by our Champions throughout the training, and we are already seeing the positive effects as team members put what they have learned into practice. Congratulations to our team cohorts!
