Applications for the 2019 cohort of the Ridgeway Transformative Leadership Experience are now being accepted. Ridgeway is an immersive year-long experience for leaders in Central Appalachia at any stage of life who are looking to “level up” in their personal, interpersonal, organizational and network development. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until the cohort is full and applicants are encouraged to apply by Monday, October 1, 2018 to ensure consideration for the 2019 cohort 

Participants are chosen with the intent that each cohort reflects multiple dimensions of diversity and experience inherent in its East Kentucky home base and the surrounding region. Ridgeway is cross-sector and intergenerational. 

Visit ridgewayleadership.net to find out more or contact program facilitator Carrie Brunk directly.
 
 
 
 
 
 
MACED is partnering with East Kentucky Concentrated Employment Program (EKCEP) to create some great opportunities for displaced coal industry workers who want to start a new career in the energy economy. Other candidates may also be qualified as determined by EKCEP. These New Energy Internships pay well and are designed to lead either to full employment or the opportunity to start a new business in the new energy economy.
