The study trip is a multi-day learning excursion to a nationally or internationally respected nonprofit agency. All LeaderSpring Fellows have an opportunity to take a study trip during the second year of their Fellowship. Previous international destinations include: Johannesburg, South Africa; Nairobi, Kenya; San Salvador, El Salvador; and Kathmandu, Nepal. The main goals of the study trips are to:
Help Fellows achieve their stated learning goals for the Fellowship.
Learn concrete tools and ideas that Fellows can apply to their agency.
Gain inspiration by observing other agencies and leadership models.
Take time away from day-to-day work for individual learning and reflection.
