Leadership Exploration and Development (LEAD) Program

Members of the Leadership Exploration and Development (LEAD) Program are empowered to become servant leaders through creating connections, and learning about compassion and civic engagement.

Our past graduates had the following things to say about leadership, after successfully completing the program:

“Leadership is more than getting recognition for your authority. It is not about getting all of the credit. It is about helping individuals be the best they can be. It is equipping people with skills and encouragement to be as successful as possible.”

“Leadership is connecting with people that you wouldn’t find elsewhere.  It is about exemplifying a person of trust and someone they can come to if they need advice.  This lead program has helped me progress and accomplish proper leadership in my other activities.”
