Leadership Training Program 2016

Leadership Training Program 2016 (Leadership Skills Development Training Program & Divyabodhanam Classes)

The Leadership Training Program (LTP) held under the auspices of Marth Mariam Vanitha Samajam of the Northeast American Diocese will continue to be held this year at six campuses. LTP is a three year program and every year is one level. It has two main components namely the study of Orthodox faith based on the Divyabodhanam course materials and the development of leadership skills among the participants. Of the three sessions held annually, half a day will be set apart for learning a Divyabodhanam book and the other half for learning leadership skills. Those who successfully complete the three level courses based on the ten books (available both in English and Malayalam) will be awarded certificates of completion of the course.

2015 was a fruitful year in which two hundred and one participants attended the program at the five campuses. This year a new campus has been added in the Philadelphia Region. Husbands and wives are encouraged to join the program. Registered participants can choose any location according to their convenience. Level one classes are not available at the Muttontown, Boston and Baltimore campuses but it will be available at the New Jersey, Rockland and Philadelphia campuses. The registration fee is $75 per person which includes the textbooks, breakfast, lunch, and snack.
