Inauguration of a new volunteer leader training program was announced here today by the National Council of Jewish Women, following the arrival in the United States of Mrs. Alisa Sekey of Israel, the first person to be granted a fellowship under the new NCJW program.

The purpose of the program, according to Mrs. Irving M. Engel, president of the NCJW, is to “employ American’s organizational life as a laboratory where methods may be learned which will promote welfare and strengthen democracy in other lands” through reinforcement of the capacity of women for leadership in their communities. The program also foresees an exchange of experience and information among women of many lands on the ways in which they have been effective in their communities.
