Inspiring Community Involvement
Leadership Toledo balances service and volunteerism with personal growth. Through this program, participants can develop a deeper understanding of our region, its strengths, and many of the issues it faces. At the same time, they'll have the opportunity to explore their own personal strengths and talents, and use them to improve and enrich our community.
This ten month experiential program provides individuals with the opportunity to become more confident leaders, connect with the community on a deeper level, grow stronger in self-awareness, and serve in ways that are meaningful to them. Participants from diverse backgrounds and professions come together each month for intensive sessions that focus on community needs and issues, and define the roles they can play in addressing those needs.
Each monthly session features both educational and participatory experiences, including dialogue and development of professional relationships among class members. In addition to the regular sessions, participants work in teams performing community volunteer projects to be completed by the end of the program year.
Leadership Toledo seeks candidates who have already exhibited leadership in their respective spheres of influence and desire to grow as leaders and members of the community. The class size is limited to 30 individuals. Tuition is $2,950, which includes all materials, a light breakfast, and lunch at most sessions.
Due to circumstances caused by COVID-19, the Signature Program has been canceled until 2021. Recruitment for the next class will begin in March 2021. In the meantime, Leadership Toledo will be developing additional learning opportunities for continued connection and growth.
