2017-2018 American Legion Auxiliary Leadership
What is this program, and why do we have it? The Leadership program raises awareness of ALA leadership development opportunities. The Leadership program and the 2014-2019 ALA Centennial Strategic Plan: In support of Goal 3 (Develop Leadership at All Levels), the Leadership committee raises awareness of leadership development opportunities through how-to sheets and online resources.
Leadership - Mentoring is a great way to provide support and assistance to Auxiliary members who are interested in taking on more responsibilities in their Unit and in Department.
Also mentoring women veterans who are transitioning back into the civilian community. Offering to assist with job interviewing skills, resume building, and clothing needs will help prepare individuals to succeed and achieve. Search local businesses that are owned and operated by women veterans. Assist these businesses by promoting and financially supporting the products and services they offer. Connect with local homeless shelters and VA outreach programs to discover if women veterans have specific needs to enable them to safely enhance their living conditions and maximize employment opportunities. Provide details/examples about the activity in your report.
Taking the time to share a favorite story about the positive impact you or someone you know has had on our mission is worth doing! It helps us tell the world who we are, what we do, and why we matter.
