In order to form these leaders and ensure the continuity of each association, the Emmaus - Training in Spiritual Leadership program was created specifically to train members of their network. Its goal is to form and instruct missionaries who will become fundamental for developing the activities of their respective associations.
The program seeks to engage each student in the organisational culture of his or her sponsoring association, to have a good grasp of its works, to have contact with the previous leadership, and to gain knowledge of the association as a whole. Classes are taught in English, French, and Spanish.
To be accepted into the program, a candidate must fully identify with the culture of the association, be referred by the director of a member association of the network, and undergo a rigorous selection process that includes one or several interviews and a thorough analysis of his or her CV.
Classes are taught by well-trained teachers with a solid formation and experience in missions in various countries. They are directors of associations and leaders in their fields of activities. In their classes, they show great pedagogical competence, seeking to expound with clarity and precision. They are highly qualified to administer the classes and directed works.
