The National Organization of Bridging Leaders (NOBLe) is composed of the Center’s fellows and program participants who went through Bridging Leadership workshops. It aims to serve as a venue for enabling them to work collectively and maintain a network of available support. Also, it serves as a place where one’s ideas may be cultivated, refined and acted upon in collaboration with other Bridging Leaders. In other words, it is a community of constant refuge which all Bridging Leaders may come home to.
While the Center has already journeyed with more than 2,000 public sector leaders all over the Philippines and some Asian countries, our alumni come from different Center programs. With NOBLe, however, more links are established and strengthened over time.
- To establish and strengthen the nationwide community of Bridging Leaders by creating a formal organization that will serve as a constant sanctuary for all members
