NFTY-CAR Leadership Training Institute (LTI)

Sunday November 20, 2016
2-7 PM | Highland Park, IL

No one is born a leader - you become one by filling your leadership toolkit with tools to help you lead and problem solve, and that's what Leadership Training Day is all about.

AmeyaPawar2Our keynote speaker will be Ameya Pawar. An independent Chicago Alderman and the youngest person serving on the City Council, Alderman Pawar has been dubbed the "anti-politics alderman." You don't want to miss the story of the campaign he led out of a bowling alley, with the help of a high school freshman from Oak Park and his friends.

  • Hear from leaders from across the Chicagoland area on topics like fundraising, public speaking, managing a board of your friends, gaining the confidence to lead, and making social change.
  • Take part in a five-hour leadership learning intensive where you can choose sessions that will give you the skills you think you need to become a better leader
