If you haven’t applied for the 2016 Consumer SEED Leadership course get it in soon. The deadline for applications is Friday 15 July.

SEED stands for Success, Empowerment, Excellence and Developing self and others.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join the dozens of blind community members who have embarked on a path of self-development and improvement through attending the SEED Leadership Programme.

The next course will be held in Dunedin from Monday August 29 to Wednesday August 31 2016.

Who can attend?

Clients and family members of clients, who would like to build leadership skills, explore their personal style, and who already participate in community based projects or would like to in the future, are invited to apply.

The Consumer SEED programme theme ‘leading self and then leading others’ will continue this year and will be a guiding principle of the programme.

What will you gain from the programme?

  • Practical skills to work effectively within, and for your group or community
  • Working collaboratively
  • Influencing change
  • Motivating others
  • Peer support
  • Community leadership
  • Giving and receiving feedback
  • Effective problem solving

The Blind Foundation offers this programme, including accommodation and travel with no cost to clients, insuring all have an equal opportunity to become leaders in their community.
