This program is designed for professionals new to supervisory positions who have demonstrated promise as a future leader in the field or seasoned supervisors who want a refresh on skills and techniques to be the best supervisor you can be. The Institute is designed to expose participants to critical leadership skills in preparation for future leadership growth.  After completion of the Emerging Leaders Institute and continued employment in the field,  participants should explore the FRPA Leadership school (currently in development), and then the Abrahams Jones Leadership Academy as a professional development journey to  further prepare them as an executive level leader in the parks and recreation field.
