Leadership Starke County Kicks Off First Class Sept. 7

Leadership Starke County is gearing up for its first community leadership training class, and a few openings are still available.

The nine-month training program provides 15–20 local citizens with local knowledge of the Starke County area, skills, network, and confidence to become a leader in the community. Each of the nine sessions in the program focuses on topics related to the county, and allows participants to learn what “out of the box” thinking has done for Starke County and what they can do to improve it.

The classes take place on the first Friday of each month from September to May, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at various locations throughout the county. The purpose of the program is to identify new, emerging leaders and help individuals get involved in their community and its future.

The cost of the program is $300, and includes instruction, lunch, materials, bus trip, and graduation.
