Leadership Development

PHI sees its role in leadership development as providing the resources, training and momentum to help existing community leaders build power and make lasting change. PHI works within and alongside communities—often through existing community networks, organizations or community groups—to builds skills in collaboration, advocacy and strategy development. Through seed funding, network building and technical assistance, PHI boosts the power of local leaders to identify and address the issues that are most important in their neighborhods, communities and countries. We develop  local, state, national, and global leadership programs, and provide in-person and online trainings to a diverse set of emerging leaders, including future healthcare providers, public health students and practitioners, local community collaboratives, and youth.
