Aspiring Leadership Development Program
What we do
The Aspiring Leader Development Program (ALDP) serves as a foundational development program for aspiring leaders by providing participants with skills and tools supporting their pursuit and ownership of their own leader development.
The online Aspiring Leader Development Program (ALDP) pilot is designed to serve as a foundational development program for entry level NPS employees who aspire to lead in their career by providing participants with knowledge, skills and tools, supporting the pursuit and ownership of their own professional development. ALDP addresses an identified developmental gap for a foundational non-position specific leadership course within the NPS. ALDP:
- Builds on the National Park Service Call to Action
- Aligns with the Office of Personnel Management’s initial tier of leadership development
- Compliments current NPS leadership development programming
The program participants are full-time, permanent or term NPS employees at the GS 5-7 levels and equivalent Wage Grades, who will be in pay status for the duration of the program.
