The Beacon Project

A lighthouse notifies sailors that land is near and warns them that they are approaching rocks, reefs and shallow waters. The Beacon is the guiding light of the lighthouse. It shines in all directions so that it can be used by sailors as a focal point, while steering towards a safe harbor.

The Beacon Project, a program of RoadMap, is a creative and exciting initiative designed to address a critical need we have seen inside many movement organizations, including within highly effective organizations. This initiative will build a cadre of staff leaders to become “Beacons”, that is, internal change agents and catalysts for organizational resiliency, health and effectiveness.

Beacons will participate in an intensive leadership and organizational development program accompanied by additional one-on-one support. The goal is to embed transformational change skills and practices inside organizations and alliances in a sustainable and consistent way.
