The National Child Welfare Workforce Institute developed the Leadership Academy for Middle Managers (LAMM) as a national training program for middle managers who work in public and tribal child welfare systems and in private agencies under contract with a state or county child welfare agencies. This competency-based training prepares leaders for the environment of constant change and equips them with new information, skills, and hands-on opportunities to apply practices and principles based on an empirically informed Leadership Model. The purpose of this curriculum is to prepare middle managers to lead meaningful change to serve the most vulnerable children, youth, and families.
