This dinner equipped child care providers with the opportunity to learn about pathways to quality, child care funding opportunities, and additional resources available to them in efforts of extending child care services.

Our hope is to continue the conversation and continuously address needs of individuals in Putnam County to make a difference in lives and livelihoods.

The leaders that compiled this dinner were: Michael Fidler, Thomas Novak, Craig Tuggle, Georgian Simion, Mark Harbin, Hannah Cline, John Tischer, Lisa Clark, Gretchen Wallace, Elizabeth Butts, Ian Wallace, Vincent Aguirre, Jessie Scott, Samantha Sarich, Erin Sprinkle and Christina Krouse.

The Purdue Extension Community Leadership Program is designed to empower individuals who want to make a difference in their community.

Consisting of eleven sessions, participants will explore various topics that enhance professional development, personal growth and community engagement. Session topics include: Nature of leadership, Myers- Briggs Indicator Training, interpersonal communication, personal diversity, becoming a conflict competent leader and much more.
