The Defense Civilian Emerging Leader Program (DCELP) offers a dynamic learning environment for entry-level and emerging Federal leaders at the GS 7-12 or equivalent level. During the four seminars lasting one week each, participants are immersed in a variety of experiential activities that promote self-awareness, enhance oral and written communication skills, share proven team building strategies, and strengthen overall leadership capabilities. DCPAS plans and executes the DCELP. At the conclusion of the program, DCELP participants come away with the tools needed to thrive in today’s government.
