Establishing an International Leadership Institute Chapter in Scotland - Free Place

Course: Establishing an Intergenerational Leadership Institute Chapter
Dates: 26-27th November 2018
Location: Seville, Spain
Cost: € 100 (GWT is offering one free place)

Hosted by the National Confederation of Active Seniors, the Intergenerational Leadership Institute (ILI) is a certificate-training program developed by Penn State University for older adults seeking new lifelong learning experiences, skills and volunteer opportunities to contribute to innovation and change in their communities through an intergenerational perspective. ILI functions as a sort of incubator for creating and sustaining new intergenerational programs at local level. After attending the ILI yearlong program, older participants will have the skills to lead concrete intergenerational plans, programs and campaigns.

Generations Working Together will be attending the training course in November and is looking for someone who works for an older people’s organisation to accompany GWT on the training course. The ultimate goal is to bring the knowledge back to Scotland to work together to look at ways GWT could support older people’s groups and how you can deliver this training to older people seeking new lifelong learning experiences, skills and volunteer opportunities to contribute to innovation and change in their communities.

You will need to cover your own travel and accommodation costs however GWT will cover one person’s course fee which will includes training materials, two lunches, three coffee breaks and your final certificate from Pennsylvania State University, USA.

The training is meant to be a beginning of further training and opportunities (for further) involvement and leadership in intergenerational programs. CONFEMAC hosts this 12-hrs-long training addressed to European organizations interested in establishing an ILI chapter. During the training participants will be provided with a foundation background in intergenerational practice as well as with all materials needed to launch the ILI program.

If you would like to attend and represent an older people’s organisation in Scotland please get in touch with Alison Clyde, National Development Manager.
