The Campagna Academy is launching a leadership training program in partnership with the Leadership Institute at Purdue University Northwest.

The program will focus on leadership development for 10-selected leaders within Campagna Academy.

“It is our hope that this research-based, customized leadership training will provide practical techniques and tools for participants,” said Mekisha Neal-Richardson, assistant director of the Leadership institute at Purdue University Northwest.

The training program will include leadership development presentations and activities facilitated by the team at the institute, which include leadership experts from both the academic and business world. The seminars will include the latest evidenced-based leadership content and learning activities to create experiences that strengthen leadership skills.

“Campagna's mission driven culture has helped develop a group of leaders who are passionate about making a difference in the lives of children,” said Elena Dwyre, CEO of Schererville-based Campagna Academy. “Our partnership with the Purdue Northwest Leadership Institute, recognizes their talent and sacrifice (and) the training curriculum has been created with our organization's current needs and long-term plans in mind.”

Campagna Academy was founded 75 years ago as Hoosier Boys' Town. Today it is a residential treatment provider with a program certified to work with children with intellectual and learning disabilities as well as individuals with both medical and psychiatric needs.
