Lifetime Leadership Program (LLP)
Lifetime Leadership Program...
The Lifetime Leadership Program is for those who have a lifetime of accumulated skills and leadership, and would like to use their wealth of knowledge to make a difference in their lives and in the community.
Leadership Fairfax and Volunteer Fairfax seek retirees who want to move their lives from "success to significance." To help people recognize their potential in the second half of their lives we have designed a transition training for high-level volunteering and community engagement. This program empowers you to look at who you are in relation to your community-at-large, and encourages you to explore opportunities for civic awareness, community action, and volunteer connections. LLP is based on the belief that retirees can offer a wealth of experience, leadership, and vitality to your communities while enriching your own lives.
LLP is a partnership between Leadership Fairfax and Volunteer Fairfax, supported by the Positive Aging Coalition, George Mason University, Fairfax County Neighborhood and Community Services, and Area Agency on Aging. This 2-1/2 month program offers six bi-weekly program days, providing an overview of ways to transition into your next life chapter and insight into the Fairfax County community and its needs.
You have a lifetime of accumulated skills and leadership and, now, you have time to direct those skills into actions that can make a real difference in your community. Through LLP, while connecting with peers in your class, you will set the stage to convert your wealth of knowledge into meaningful roles of engagement in your community. Let us show you how to translate your expertise from career to premiere in a supportive and trusting environment.
