The Granite Leader Program builds leadership skills within the community of people who have lived experience as formerly homeless, increasing their capacity to take on influential roles on issues pertinent to their lives. Through a free educational program in New Hampshire, selected participants learn specific skills and interact with widely recognized leaders on the local, state, and national levels. Upon completion of the program, graduates become part of a network of skilled leaders focused on improving the quality of life in communities across New Hampshire.
Topics include legislative process, advocacy skills, media and communications and how to participate how to be engaged on a Board or Council/Coalition level of involvement. Granite Leader graduates join a network of Granite Leader Alumni to continue to collaborate, share opportunities, and engage with peers for best advocacy impact.
