Abstract 
Panelists will discuss how a distinctive leaders training program has impacted the lives of its participants over the past 40 years. The focus will be on how training can relay more than knowledge and skills but also influence values having the potential to effect broader social change. While many programs focus on skills and knowledge development alone, the Asian Rural institute (ARI) located in Tochigi Prefecture, aims to also transfer values which bring about more equitable and just communities. Stories from research as well as from current staff and former participants will share some of the changes experienced by individuals and how they are able to impact their local communities.
