Leadership Newberry County is designed for the leader who is dedicated to making a difference in the community. It is an immersive learning experience that focuses each month on topics including Agriculture, Arts, Communities, Economic Development, Education, Government, Infrastructure, Law Enforcement, Health and Human Services, Recreation, and Tourism. This is an experience-based program and is designed to help participants understand the assets and challenges of Newberry County, elevate their leadership, and further engage in the community. The intensive examination of these issues gives the candidates the information and confidence to make a positive change in our community.
Participants will expand upon their personal and professional networks as they work together one day for each of nine months, and the program will culminate in the completion of a class-initiated project.
