PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Three organizations are establishing a training program for emerging leaders from community groups, labor unions and religious organizations.

The Providence Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1gE23RO ) that the Opportunities Industrialization Center of Rhode Island, NAACP-Providence branch and Institute for Labor Studies and Research will seek to identify and cultivate minority leaders. It’s intended to give participants skills to make an impact in their communities.

The statewide program, called Leadership for a Future, was initially established by the Institute for Labor and Research to provide training, leadership development and networking for emerging and established leaders.

Since its inception in 2000, nearly 300 leaders from 23 Rhode Island cities and towns have graduated.

The program begins with an orientation Feb. 7. Eight sessions will meet every other Monday from 4:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
