TRLP strives to be the premier leadership development resource for rural Texas.
Showcasing success stories in different aspects of rural life creates models for others. Each community has something unique to its history and future. TRLP finds what works well in one community and provides for a wider sharing across the state, providing examples for others.
TRLP is more than consulting. It puts power in the hands of local citizens through new knowledge, changed attitudes, and dedicated skills. The future is yours with TRLP.
TRLP utilizes its network of rural service providers to assist local communities with strategic planning, vision mapping, and project funding proposals.
TRLP communities change their self-view, creating a positive outlook toward what is possible rather than the status quo. They change their language and focus on what can be over what has been.
A larger sense of empowerment and inclusion grows through the work of TRLP, engaging the greater community instead of resting the future in the hands of a powerful few. Community engagement is a key to success.
TRLP supplies methods toward a brighter future.
TRLP provides leadership development opportunities in under-served areas of rural Texas.
