The class typically meets two times each month on Monday evenings from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Sessions begin in September and run through early May. In addition to class sessions, participants may have some additional meetings with their project group. The average amount of time spent working on group projects outside of class is 20 hours over 9 months. Participants also have the option of two one-on-one leadership coaching sessions with the program instructor - each sessions is approximately 1.5 hours.
Participants should not plan to miss any sessions. However, life happens and consideration will be made for absences that cannot be helped. Please notify the executive director as soon as possible. Remember: As leaders, when you commit to the program up front, you commit not only to yourself, but to your fellow students, group members and leaders of the program.
Snacks and beverages may be available at some of the sessions, but they are NOT a standard part of the program. Participants are encouraged to eat before they arrive or bring something with them to the session.
Graduation means that you have participated in the program, challenged yourself, and taken every opportunity to learn about the community and grow as a leader. Regular attendance is required in order to receive a certificate of completion.
