About Rural Development Leadership Network (RDLN)
RDLN is a national multicultural social change organization that supports community-based development in poor rural areas through hands-on projects, education and skills building, leadership development and networking. Through RDLN, emerging leaders from poor rural areas spearhead development projects and design related study through which they may earn a certificate or academic credential. Participants attend RDLN’s month-long Rural Development Institute at the University of California, lead development projects in their communities under the umbrella of a Sponsoring Organization, engage in ongoing peer support and exchange, and have the option of earning an accredited academic degree.
RDLN’s webinars on Entrepreneurship are being provided as part of a Commitment-to-Action with the Clinton Global Initiative. RDLN is currently accepting applications for its month-long Institute at UCDavis this spring and for its master’s degree program with Antioch University Midwest.
