2013 marks the 40th anniversary of our ARI Rural Leaders Training Program, and ARI is using this opportunity to better understand how our Graduates have impacted their home communities over the years.


Since Winter 2013  Sarajean has been working with ARI leadership to put together a framework for the review. Since April, 2013 two graduate students from Sophia University, Lisette Robles and Jack Lichten, have been working as research assistants helping with in all aspects of the training program review. This research team has been visiting the ARI interviewing staff and 2013 Participants seeking out their views of the program’s strengths and weaknesses.

With the generous support from the Fetzer Institute, we have initiated a long term project to analyze the training based on the participants’ and graduates’ experiences.
