Blue CAPS rolls out leadership training
Blue CAPS kicked off its first leadership training yesterday through which a number of participants from about seven NGOs will receive training that will eventually enable them to articulate, aggregate and address the needs of their respective communities. Blue CAPS founder Clinton Urling said the training will run for a month initially, and will include theoretical as well as practical instruction in general leadership skills. The training will take place strictly on weekends, during which time participants will spend a total of eight hours in classrooms receiving theoretical instructions.
The remainder of the time will be spent in the fields, where participants will be divided into groups, and will be required to design sustainable small-scale projects to address actual issues in identified communities. This is designed to create and hone practical experience.
