Thu, November 17, 3:45 to 5:15pm, Hyatt Regency Capitol Hill, Regency D


The literature on important capacities for nonprofit leaders indicates that transformational leadership, empowerment, and social capital are characteristic qualities of leaders in successful organizations. Yet no studies have focused on whether grassroots organizations in low and middle income countries help development these capacities in their members. This paper reports on a quantitative study comparing a grassroots association community intervention program to a matched control group of non-participants on outcomes of leadership development, empowerment, and social capital. The data for the study was collected over a 6-month period during 2015 in El Salvador.
