Advanced Leadership Certification Series

The JLKCMO partners with the Midwest Center for Nonprofit Leadership (MCNL) at the University of Missouri – Kansas City for our Advanced Leadership Certification Series (ALCS). The ALCS program is a series of eight advanced leadership courses, each approximately three hours long and offered once during a given League year. You do not have to attend all sessions, and you do not need to attend in order; they are built as stand-alone courses, so anyone can take any module along the way. To receive ALCS Certification, jointly given by the JLKCMO and the MCNL, you must complete the entire series of eight courses.

We have limited spots available for members of other Junior Leagues. For more information, please email the Training Committee.
