Project CENTRL (Arizona’s Center for Rural Leadership)

Project CENTRL assists highly motivated leaders to become more effective and responsive leaders in rural Arizona. Project CENTRL is a 501 (c)(3) organization operating in partnership with the University of Arizona College of Ag & Life Sciences Cooperative Extension. The CENTRL experience includes a series of 9, three-day seminars in Arizona, a five-day international study tour, and culminates with an six-day national seminar in Washington D. C. Seminar topics include: fundamentals of leadership; effective communications; community and economic development; managing natural resources; focus on social issues; border, immigration, labor, and food-supply dynamics; and state and national public-policy formation. The CENTRL experience is all about recognizing challenges, exploring opportunities, and making a difference in agriculture and rural Arizona. An active Alumni Council and bi-annual regional meetings help to strengthen CENTRL’s network and vision of inspiring a life long journey of leadership.
