Centro Santa Angela will follow a hybrid model of delivery for its school for community leaders in 2023 and 2024.

Thirty youth and adults, both men and women, will take part each year in person, following a curriculum adapted to the current political climate and the needs and desires of the participants. The online course “Public Administration from a Citizen’s Perspective,” which is a pilot program, will be open each year to participants from across Peru.

Students will apply their new leadership skills by designing and implementing initiatives in their communities. The current unrest in Peru and the dismal performance of the country’s public office holders has underscored the importance of developing, as Centro Santa Angela does, leadership that is democratic, transparent, and ethical.

In addition to running the school, Centro Santa Angela will develop, engage and accompany the network of Leadership School alumni, helping them monitor local government performance and raise public awareness.

A communications strategy to broaden public knowledge of public affairs and promote citizen engagement will be developed and executed, and certification of the school by the education system will be sought.

Centro Santa Angela will also write and publish a description and evaluation of the school’s first 10 years. These steps aim to institutionalize the Leadership School as a permanent and recognized contributor to ethical and democratic leadership development in Peru.
