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 is also partnering with Harrison County Community Foundation (HCCF) to offer Building Dynamic Boards of Directors training within our program. Participants sharpen their knowledge of the most critical elements of nonprofit boards of directors. This training meets HCCF’s requirement for nonprofits that apply for funding to have at least one current board member who has completed approved nonprofit board governance training.
In addition to receiving training, the members of each class identify and complete a class project directly addressing a need somewhere in Harrison County. Graduates leave the 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 usually on the third Wednesday of each month, September - May. Click here for dates and topics for the 2019 class. Tuition, which is deeply subsidized by local sponsors, is $500 for the entire year. A limited number of partial scholarships are available. 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 a maximum of 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.
The 2019 class is full, and we have closed the application. We will open the application for the next class in April 2019.
