What is leadership?
Scarabys defines leadership as the individuals, teams and organizations that work to address the problems in their community for the betterment of all, especially those who are often not heard or valued. Too often community leadership is defined/selected by outside forces. How is Scarabys’ leadership development model different?
After developing social capital and community building, participants will learn how to empower individuals and communities to face challenges courageously and solve problems together. Through guided candid dialogue and providing space for individuals to talk about their shared experiences and facing collective challenges, projects and programs are birthed that utilize systems thinking to not only address these community challenges but also provide practice and learning opportunities for the community to actualize their collective agency. Scarabys is comprised of an inter-generational multi-ethnic team with experience ranging from newcomers to over 50 years of community building.
