Interested in Quest?

Are you a mid-career professional who wants to strengthen your leadership skills while also making a meaningful contribution to the community?
Are you looking for ways to support the professional development of employees in your organization? Quest may be the answer!

Quest is a process of self discovery and growth. Participants return to their organizations not only with stronger relational and leadership skills, but with a heightened appreciation for the communities in which they live and work.

"I learned so much, I have been enlightened, and have many more tools in my toolbox. I can now articulate the definition of a leader - I am so grateful." Cynthia Martin, Director of Programs for the National Conference for Community and Justice (NCCJ), Quest 2016

We are accepting applications now for the 2017 Quest Program that begins in January, but the October 31 application deadline is fast approaching. Please email Julie Connolly at or call 860.206.5069 for more information.
