Alumni Network & Testimonials

The Community Arts Education Leadership Institute (CAELI) provides an intensive, transformative experience through which current and aspiring leaders advance their skills by engaging with top leadership trainers and nationally known practitioners. It is ideally suited for those in executive positions or preparing to move into such positions.

The seven-month program includes a five-day seminar at Bryn Mawr College (Philadelphia, PA), advanced assignments, a 360-degree feedback process, and follow-up coaching.

CAELI defines leadership as “behaving in ways that bring people together to move things forward.”

CAELI will increase your leadership effectiveness by helping you:

  • Identify your core values and learn how these influence behavior and decision making
  • Increase awareness of the characteristics of effective leadership
  • Deepen your understanding of your strengths, weaknesses, and preferences
  • Create a plan to identify and meet your developmental goals in terms of organizational leadership, interpersonal communication, and functional management proficiency
  • Put your plan into action back home

To optimize the learning experience, participation is limited to 25 individuals selected through a competitive application process.

 For more information, contact James Horton, National Guild director of learning and digital media, at 212-268-3337 ext. 12 or

Over the years, the Community Arts Education Leadership Institute has been made possible thanks to generous support from the American Express Foundation, The Cleveland Foundation, The Bay and Paul Foundations, the National Endowment for the Arts, and National Guild's board of trustees.
