Track Sessions Overview
The Brushy Fork Annual Institute provides a place for community leaders from central Appalachia to come together to explore issues facing the region and to develop solutions they can implement in their organizations and communities. The Institute features informative plenary sessions, hands-on workshop tracks and focused networking opportunities.
Participants enroll in one track session, which provides 14 hours of intensive training focused on a specific skill set or interest. In addition to acquiring hands-on skills, participants join other inspired leaders who are making a positive difference across Appalachia, expanding their network of contacts and gathering resources for putting ideas to action.
Note: Track descriptions will be updated as necessary prior to event registration. Please check the site often to learn more about our 2013 tracks.
