Charting a path to success for a new generation of leaders

At 21 inc, we value immensely the organizations that contribute, whether financially or in-kind, to the on-going success of our programs. Without the support of our numerous partners, we could not continue to grow across Atlantic Canada to extend our community of Emerging Leaders. Government and corporate support has been instrumental in launching our signature 21 Leaders program in both New Brunswick and Nova Scotia in 2012.

There are many ways to support 21 inc.:

A branded bursary, value: $5,000

Joining the Leaders Circle is the most direct contribution to effectively develop high performing leaders for our province and region. This influential group invests inbursaries that are branded and promoted throughout the selection process. Bursaries cover approximately 70 percent of the cost of participation in the 21 Leaders experience.

Leaders Circle members also have the opportunity to become directly involved as a speaker, guest, or mentor.
