The Family Leadership Training Institute (FLTI) – Larimer County reduces barriers to civic participation. Graduates learn the civic skills they need to make a difference in their community.

FLTI helps:

  • Bridge the gap between local residents and decision-makers
  • Make sure that programs and policies reflect multiple community voices.
  • Support local decision-makers by bringing diverse community voices to the table.

New participants can sign up for a multi-week course. The class is nonpartisan & the content is community-driven.  All this work creates a healthier and more inclusive Larimer County. You will have fun each week while exploring important issues like:

  • Community problem solving
  • What kind of leader you want to be
  • Public speaking
  • Building networks
  • How to work with the media
  • How government works
  • Public policy
  • And so much more

Alumni of the FLTI class have the opportunity to use and build on their new skills. They can:

  • Participate in or even lead community forums
  • Attend additional leadership training
  • Build on their projects started in the class
  • Engage elected officials on what matters to them
  • Speak with policymakers about what their community needs
