Leadership Garrett County
Leadership Garrett County begins its second year in the fall of 2017. We are hoping to build on the success of the inaugural year's program, where 41 local, emerging leaders undertook an experiential learning program to develop their skills as future community leaders.
The program is targeted toward identifying and developing emerging leaders from the ranks of local citizens, non-profits, for-profits and governmental/educational/health institutions. Most students are in the millennial population segment and are from a variety of career backgrounds. All students must apply and be sponsored by a local organization. The program consists of monthly all day meetings over a period of a half year where students hear from local leaders, travel to and learn about local institutions, participate in lectures and network with other emerging leaders in the class.
