Since 1995, Leadership Harrison County (LHC) has been working to develop servant leaders in our community. Each year, we spend nine months taking a class of participants through an opening two-day retreat and eight day-long sessions of leadership training designed to equip and inspire citizens to contribute to Harrison County professionally and personally. Our curriculum focuses on these content areas:
LHC also partners with Harrison County Community Foundation (HCCF) to offer Building Dynamic Boards of Directors training (required for local nonprofits who apply to HCCF for funding) alongside our program.
In addition to receiving training, the members of each LHC class identify and complete a class project directly addressing an opportunity somewhere in Harrison County. Graduates leave our program energized to serve the community by participating on boards, seeking or creating volunteer opportunities, and implementing new skills in their existing leadership roles.
We welcome participants of all ages and all walks of life. Classes are on either the 2nd or 3rd Wednesday of each month, September - May. Please review the dates and topics for the 2020 class. Tuition, which is deeply subsidized by local sponsors, is $500. Up to four partial scholarships are available, but the scholarship application has closed for this year. To confirm a place in the class, participants must 1) submit a complete application, 2) have a successful interview, and 3) submit payment. Each class is limited to 20 participants. We select participants based on two primary factors: 1) a timely and complete application process and 2) a demonstrated desire to apply servant leadership to benefit our community.
