2021-2023 Ignatian Leadership Program

CLA Detroit logoDo you know an emerging young adult leader? Are you one?

Contemplative Leaders in Action (CLA) is a leadership program for young adults (ages 24-39) rooted in the spirituality tradition of St. Ignatius of Loyola. The world needs Ignatian leaders – passionate “contemplatives in action” discerning God’s movements in their lives and responding out of love as hopeful, joyful people with and for others. This kind of leadership flows from a deep spiritual life and inspired sense of purpose.

Learn more about CLA and the application process online. Nominate younger adults you know who would benefit from this national program by emailing cladet@ignatianyoungadults.org.

CLA is for those eager to improve their effectiveness as leaders, and willing to put their spirituality into action in service to others here in Detroit. Our ideal cohort is composed of people from diverse identities, professional experiences and educational backgrounds. Cohort members engage in 18 monthly meetings along with annual retreats and days of reflection, interacting with inspiring professionals and reflecting on the intersections of career, faith, family and leadership. Sign up for the virtual information session on May 10 at 7:30 p.m. Visit CLA Detroit and the FAQ page for more information or contact Carrie Czajka at cladet@ignatianyoungadults.org.
