Reconciliation Leadership

Donation protected

I am in the process of developing a spiritual version of the Reconciliation Leadership training curriculum that I created while working at the United Nations for 30 years. About to turn 81, the transition to new leaders for this work is part of my succession plan.

The process of identifying and training new leaders is taking longer than anticipated. To complete the current stage of this process, I need your help and contribution towards the shortfall of $6,000.

The program has reconciliation and our goodness at its core and teaches participants how to deal with conflict to build trust and emotional balance which strengthens a community’s ability to discern, work, and act together.

I am hoping to continue training and coaching leaders

• I was awarded three grants so far: The Lyman Fund, Obadiah Brown Benevolent Fund, the Legacy Grant: “The NEYM Legacy Futures Grant was awarded to Virginia Swain to transform the program she developed to train Reconciliation Leaders during a 30-year leading at the United Nations and offer it as the Reconciliation Leadership Program for NEYM. The program is designed to stabilize and empower Meetings to develop leaders who are led and cleared to develop reconciliation tools, techniques, assumptions and perspectives to heal historic and current challenges. RLs are potential Elders in Monthly and Yearly Meetings willing to offer wisdom, emotional balance and inner peace in troubled times.”

Thank you in advance for considering my request to help me pass on my ministry to restore faith in humanity.
