Building Leaders. Growing Community.

Leadership Louisa enhances understanding of the complex issues facing the Louisa community through:

  • Educational programs designed to broaden knowledge of the area, and increase awareness of community processes, programs and problems.
  • Exposure to local government, economic, social and political organizations, as well as the local education system, businesses and non-profit organizations.
  • Introductions to community leaders and local decision makers.

ATTENDANCE: Participants are expected to attend consistently and participate fully in all Leadership Louisa sessions. For the 2023 program there will be a total of 6 sessions January through June, with a graduation being included as part of the final session. Additional time will also be required for participation in a group project.

Taking into account that unanticipated emergency situations do arise, participants will be allowed, but not encouraged, to be absent from no more than one (1) scheduled class sessions. Participants must attend at least five (5) of the six (6) sessions in order to receive a Certificate of Graduation. If you are unable to make the necessary time commitment, it is not in your best interest to apply at this time.

Because of the required time commitment, the support of the participant’s employer is essential.
