Leadership Development
I. Leadership Development Models
Grassroots Community Model
Grassroots Community Leadership programs have been charged with identifying, training, and supporting
people at the community level to create their own solutions and develop leaders who can carry forward
their vision. These programs maintain a unique niche distinct from other leadership efforts in the following
ways: an ability to move leaders from focus on specific issues and problems to a broad community
perspective that strives for systems-wide change; the ability to move people to a higher calling, ethic, or
commitment to their community; and the ability to work across wide-ranging areas of expertise, differing
position on issues, and across divisive boundaries so that the outcome reflects the common good of the
community (Campbell, 1997). Examples: Grassroots Community Leadership programs include: ACORN
Institute for Social Justice, Highlander Education and Research Education Center, Grassroots Leadership,
Democracy Resource Center, Interdenominational Theological Center, National Coalition Building
Institute, National Council of La Raza, Robert Greenleaf Center, Southern Empowerment Project, and
Western States Center.
