Education and Training

. . . for a “full and abundant life for all”.

We see leadership not as something that exists outside of oneself that must be acquired, but rather as qualities, skills, and experiences that naturally exist within everyone. Seeing the connection between individual leadership and large-scale change, we are committed to providing opportunities for individuals to uncover and strengthen these assets.

For many years, we have supported the design and delivery of education programs at St. Francis Xavier University and Coady Institute. Programs that we have recently supported include:
