New in 2022 – Modified Format to Reduce Time Away from Work

A new daylong format allows participants to complete the program in six weeks. Participants meet over five days from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with a one-hour lunch. Sessions will be held at the Area Foundation offices.

Please note that out of concern for the safety of our participants, faculty and staff, the program will be held in a virtual format. Contact Sandie Palomo-Gonzalez at  spgonzalez@saafdn.org for more information.
