    Building the community...


    In 2016, the Leadership Task Force sought to design a program that addresses more leadership skills for a demanding & changing future.  What the group created was CLIMB - a program that Cultivates, Leads, Inspires, Motivates and Builds upon the basic skills and qualities of each participant.  Each session, facilitators deliver 3.5 hours of leadership skills. This program is a must for any emerging leader and anyone who wants to make a difference at their business and in their community!

    In a competitive world, it is extremely important that leaders have the necessary skills to manage various situations, CLIMB gives each student more tools to use in their toolbox.  At the end of the program, you may be inspired to take on a leadership role to help solve the issues that matter most.  Even more importantly, you will have a collection of skills and leadership alumni to call upon for future projects or problems that you may face in the business world.  Past classes have included State and Federal Legislators, Judges, Mayors, City Managers, CEOs, Physicians, Non-Profit Executives, City Council Members and Board of Education leaders in its long history.

    The sessions for the 2021-22 CLIMB program will take place VIRTUALLY.
