Have you wanted to know more about how the county works, what they actually do and why?

Have you wanted to work with our government leaders and other interested citizens? Do you want to know how you might help?

Or have you wanted to become involved in community activities but didn't think you had the skills they needed?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes—then this Leadership Development Program is meant for you. The focus is on participation.

The schedule of classes is designed to inform you—and if you wish, to prepare you to be a better participant in meetings or on boards and commissions.


"I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society
but the people themselves; and if we think them not
enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome
discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them,
but to inform their discretion with education."

- Thomas Jefferson
