After a short hiatus, FLTI has made its way back to Arapahoe County with the guidance and partnership of alumni, former staff, and numerous community partners, including: The Colorado Trust, Communities that Care, Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver, and several individuals from the Sheridan community. The momentum generated from these partnerships present an incredible opportunity for FLTI of Arapahoe County participants to join in other exciting work happening locally.
Recently, the site coordinator, a community partner, a facilitator, and two alumni presented to the City of Sheridan to ask for an investment of $7,500. Additionally, the team will soon present to The Colorado Trust to propose a funding partnership. However, opportunities still abound to form additional partnerships, raise more funds, and secure in-kind donations, such as meals, childcare providers and sponsors to provide scholarships.
As a reflection of the Sheridan’s inclusive community, FLTI of Arapahoe County offers a Spanish-speaking friendly environment. While the training will be facilitated in English, facilitators are bilingual in order to provide immediate translation of concepts, if needed, and all materials are available in Spanish.
We invite the FLTI of Colorado family to spread the word about FLTI of Arapahoe County by encouraging colleagues, friends, and family in the area to apply to be participants and sharing our needs with local business owners and organizational leaders.
FLTI of Arapahoe County is hosted by the office of CSU Extension Arapahoe County and the training site will be located at the Sheridan Recreation Center. The retreat for FLTI of Arapahoe County is scheduled for January 20th and sessions are Tuesdays from 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm.
