What is the Summer Leadership Institute?

The Summer Leadership Institute is a full day of engaging professional development designed specifically for early childhood and afterschool professionals that currently hold a leadership position (director, program supervisor, manager, assistant director) and those that aspire to a leadership position (teachers, site coordinators and other professionals), to examine and deepen their knowledge, skills and abilities in topics relevant to leadership.

What is this year’s theme?

This year’s theme is (Re)Imagine the Power of You – Inspiring Experienced and Emerging Leaders. The average person spends over 100,000 hours of their life working, so it’s important to have passion or purpose in the work we do. Whether you are currently in a leadership position or desire to be in one, imagining or reimagining your power is central to achieving more. This Institute is designed to re-inspire those that need it, to help leaders find inspiration and to support the skills needed to inspire others.

What topics of interest are we focusing on?


 We are looking for topics that will support leaders, mentors, trainers, coaches and consultants in their work with others as well as supporting their own self-care.

Who should submit a proposal?

We are committed to creating a diverse, safe and welcoming space for participants to learn and share. We want to make sure we receive session proposals from the widest audience possible, including from you! All workshops proposals are welcome and will be considered. We will give special attention to those that incorporate the theme of the event.
