Recently our CEO Mairead Boland-Brabazon attended a 7-day international L’Arche Formation in La Ferme Trosly, France. The training comprised vital topics, such as recruitment and discernment of new community leaders, procedures on community visits, and inclusion of core members and assistants in the community processes.
The event was a great balance between theoretical knowledge and practical approach, which resulted in a great learning experience. Here are some pictures of the working week:
L’Arche has always been committed to supporting each person to reach their full potential. This applies to Assistants, Core Members and Leadership Members. Everyone in L’Arche is supported to learn and grow through their daily lives in their home and community, and, through our more formal Leadership Training Programs. We are glad to have been part of this experience and look forward to applying the tools we got in the formation to our daily life in L’Arche Ireland and Northern Ireland.
