Envision Financial Community Leaders Igniting Change
Envision Financial Community Leaders Igniting Change (CLIC) is a grass-roots program that helps local community members build upon their leadership skills and confidence as change-makers. This program teaches participants how to navigate complicated challenges they are facing in their organizations, communities, and/or personal lives.
With no prerequisites but a desire for growth, CLIC provides an open, collaborative environment to build skills such as relationship-building, strategizing, critical thinking, and self-reflection. Guest speakers include content experts, community leaders, and city officials.
Taught by Dr. Kathleen Burke of the SFU Beedie School of Business, CLIC is run over 12 weeks with the first 10 sessions consisting of content delivery, facilitated discussion, small-group work, and guest speakers.
The final two sessions are reserved for presentations where each student shares what led them to CLIC, the challenges they are facing and the changes they want to make, and how CLIC has prepared them to face those challenges. Short readings (approximately 2 hours per week) will be assigned.
Program details for Cohort 10
- Duration: This 12-week program will run from January 19 to April 6, 2023.
- When: Thursday evenings from 5:30 - 8:30 PM
- Where: SFU's Surrey campus
- Time commitment: Approximately 5 hours per week (3 hour class and 2 hours of reading and related commitments between classes)
- Fee: $100 (financial support is available)
Note that you do not have to be an SFU student to apply. This program is open to all persons. Please tell your friends and share this poster widely: CLIC Poster 2023.pdf
Applications for Cohort 10 are now closed.
This program is made possible by the generous funding of Envision Financial, contributions from SFU Surrey and community support from the Surrey Poverty Reduction Coalition.
We would also like to thank our active participants, volunteers, and guest contributors that make CLIC possible!
