To be the leading community resource developing, inspiring, and engaging community leaders to improve the quality of life in the Seminole County region.
IN SUPPORT OF THIS WE COMMIT TO…
Create a program that brings present and future community leaders together for the sharing of knowledge that will inspire them to step forward and make a difference in our community. Strengthen the professional community by offering a curriculum that challenges the minds of its participants toward a shared goal of community trusteeship. Develop the basic element of strong leadership in participants as they become the force of change within our community by empowering others.
Leadership Seminole is a ten month program beginning each August with a two-day orientation followed by monthly one-day sessions focusing on timely issues within the following areas: government, arts, culture, infrastructure, public safety, human services, healthcare, education, economic development, environmental preservation, simulated society (SIMSOC), and concluding in May with law and justice and a sold out graduation ceremony with 400 people in attendance.
Participation is highly interactive and experiential, with opportunities for networking and team building throughout. The sessions are an opportunity for participants to develop lifelong relationships with their classmates, community leaders serving as facilitators and subject experts. Class members build vast background knowledge on important issues that impact them on a daily basis for the betterment of themselves, their company and their community.
