DRA Accepting Applications for the Delta Leadership Institute Executive Academy

Since 2005, the Delta Leadership Institute (DLI) has trained a diverse group of leaders dedicated to improving their communities through the Executive Academy.

DLI was created to support and educate leaders committed to helping create jobs, build their communities, and improve the lives of their neighbors. DLI provides professional leadership and policy training on issues that advance the economic and workforce competitiveness of Delta communities.

DLI fellows attend sessions for 10 months, traveling to communities in DRA’s eight state-region. Fellows explore existing programs and community models in the Delta, including discussions that enhance community engagement. Field experiences focus on improving the region, with an emphasis on economic development, infrastructure, workforce training and education, entrepreneurship and public health.

Delta residents interested in the 2019-2020 Executive Academy can apply through July 16 at
