Toachieve the goal and carry out the mission the National Program Office (NPO) conducts initiatives to bring visibility to the 187 leaders and their work, organizes and supports opportunities for leaders to learn new skills and develop new resources, and disseminates "lessons learned" unique to the individual leaders and the criteria that define the award.
