Community Leadership Academy is an effort funded by the USC School of Public Health to increase participation of individuals with disabilities on boards, committees, and councils.  In its commitment to ensure that individuals have the tools and resources necessary to effectively participate in a leadership role, the CLA course teaches skills such as professional dress, ethical and legal responsibilities, and Robert’s Rules of Order. Able SC staff will assist CLA graduates in finding leadership roles in their local communities that are in line with their passions and put their new skills to good use!
