Mission:

The Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials (GALEO) and the GALEO Latino Community Development Fund were established to increase leadership development and civic engagement of the Latino community across Georgia. In addition, GALEO was created to increase representation of Latino/Hispanic elected and appointed officials, to proactively address the issues and needs of the Latino community, and to engage the Latino/Hispanic community in the democratic and policy process across the State of Georgia.

The GALEO Latino Community Development Fund has implemented the GALEO Institute for Leadership to focus upon the leadership development of the Latino community across our state. As part of the GALEO Institute for Leadership, we have formed a strategic partnership with the University of Georgiaís Fanning Institute to expand and develop our joint efforts for the Community Leadership Program.

University of Georgia Fanning Institute: Founded in 1982, the Fanning Institute is named for Vice President and Professor Emeritus J.W. Fanning, whom many consider to be the ìfather of leadershipî in Georgia. His leadership and community development legacy is carried on today through the Fanning Instituteís continued vision of building community capacity.

Community Leadership Program:

It has been said that leadership is the prime force that makes positive things happen in a community. A primary goal of the Fanning Instituteís Community Leadership Program (CLP) is the development of knowledgeable, skilled, committed, and action-oriented leaders. This involves bringing people together with diverse backgrounds and varying perspectives to enhance their leadership skills. There are several benefits that participants derive from community leadership programs:

1. they gain a better understanding of themselves and their role as community leaders and,

2. through the sharing of their ideas and concerns, they develop plans and strategies for implementing community betterment projects and initiatives.

The curriculum being utilized for the GALEO Institute for Leadership will be the University of Georgiaís Fanning Institute 4th Edition CLP (revised 2006). The curriculum provides eight modules designed to assist participants in:

Core Modules:

1. Understanding Community Leadership
2. Effective Communication
3. Valuing Community Diversity
4. Groups Dynamics
5. Conducting Successful Meetings
6. Group Problem Solving and Decision Making
7. Managing Conflict
8. Building Communities through Partnerships and Collaboration

Additional Sessions may include:


fl GALEO Civics 101
fl Additional topics may be included based on local community needs

Community Project: class Participants will work together in one of a set of selectable projects. Participation is a graduation requisite.

This leadership program was made possible in part by the Sapelo Foundation, the University of Georgia-Fanning Institute and GALEO.

Misión:

GALEO, la Asociación de Representantes Latinos Electos de Georgia, y GLCDF, el Fondo GALEO para el Desarrollo de la Comunidad, fueron fundados para incrementar el desarrollo del liderato Latino y la participación de la comunidad Latina en el Estado de Georgia. Además, GALEO fue creado para aumentar la representación de oficiales electos Hispanos y/o Latinos, con énfasis en las necesidades y la problemática de la comunidad Latina, y para arraigar a ésta en los procesos democráticos a través de todo el Estado de Georgia.

El Fondo GALEO para el Desarrollo de la Comunidad ha fundado el Instituto GALEO para el Liderato enfocándose en el desarrollo de liderazgo dentro de la comunidad Latina en nuestro Estado. Como parte del Instituto, hemos formado una alianza estratégica con la Universidad de Georgia, y allí con el Instituto Fanning, para expandir y desarrollar esfuerzos conjuntos para el Programa de Liderato de la Comunidad.

El Instituto Fanning fue fundado en 1982, en honor al Vicepresidente y Profesor Emérito J. W. Fanning, a quien se le considera como ìel padre del liderazgoî en Georgia. Su legado en liderato y desarrollo de la comunidad continúa a través de la visión, el compromiso y los esfuerzos del Instituto Fanning en desarrollo comunitario.

El Programa de Liderato Comunitario:

El liderato ha sido descrito como la fuerza principal, raíz de logros positivos y de mejora, en una comunidad. Un objetivo primordial del Instituto Fanning es el desarrollo de líderes informados, diestros, comprometidos y dispuestos a la acción. Esto equivale a reunir personas de múltiples trasfondos y con perspectivas diversas para que ñ trabajando juntos ñ desarrollen sus habilidades y destrezas de liderato. Los participantes en programas de liderazgo comunitario derivan entonces, varios beneficios:

1. desarrollan una mayor apreciación de sí mismos y de su rol como líderes en la comunidad, y

2. al compartir sus preocupaciones y sus ideas, desarrollan estrategias y planes para implantar proyectos e iniciativas de mejorías en la comunidad.

El currículo que se ha de seguir en el Instituto GALEO para Líderes es la 4ô. Edición CLP, rev. 2006, del Instituto Fanning de la Universidad de Georgia. Este consiste de 8 módulos que han sido diseñados para apoyar a los participantes del programa en:

ï una mayor apreciación de sí mismos, de su estilo de liderato y de su comunidad;

ï desarrollar destrezas necesarias para llegar a ser líderes mejores y más fuertes en sus comunidades;

ï aprender y practicar trabajo en conjunto usando las destrezas adquiridas para acometer los problemas, retos, y necesidades de la comunidad;

ï ejercitar su liderato al involucrarse en actividades y proyectos de mejora para sus comunidades.

Módulos primarios:

1. Entender el Liderato Comunitario

2. Comunicación Efectiva

3. Valorar la Diversidad Comunitaria

4. Dinámica de Grupos

5. Conduciendo Reuniones Exitosas

6. Resolución de Problemas en Grupos y Toma de Decisiones

7. Manejando Conflictos

8. Construir Comunidades a través de Colaboración y Asociación

Otras sesiones adicionales pueden ser::

ï Cívica GALEO 101

ï Otros temas pueden intercalarse dado necesidades de la comunidad

Este programa para liderazgo ha sido posible gracias a Sapelo Foundation, y a la Universidad de Georgia - Instituto Fanning, y a GALEO.
