Leadership Raleigh is the ideal program for preparing the leaders of tomorrow. During the nine-month program, participants get an in-depth view of community issues, develop leadership skills necessary to assume leadership roles, and are exposed to community involvement opportunities.
Leadership Raleigh is unlike other programs because it provides participants with the opportunity to meet and discuss issues with key community leaders. Participants study the qualities that make an effective leader, analyze individual leadership roles, and develop personal leadership styles and skills. They are then challenged to apply their talents by joining professional associations, civic clubs, public boards and commissions.
"Participating in the Leadership Raleigh program was and continues to be a life altering experience for me. Although I grew up in Raleigh, I quickly found out how much I did not know about my city and my community. Leadership Raleigh exposed myself and 52 classmates to a wealth of information, contacts, history, and needs in the community that we live in. I was inspired monthly by the themes that were covered and moved to do my part to make a difference as well as inform those around me of what I had learned.
Another gem of this program was the connections made among the other professionals in my Leadership 29 class. There were professional relationships developed that otherwise would not have been possible and most importantly, friendships that I will carry with me for a lifetime. I am often reminded of this great experience every time I run into a classmate. I strongly recommend this program to all professionals seeking to go above and beyond and make a difference in Raleigh."
