Our Leadership Development Program
Developing Leaders in Clark County
LCC connects and engages current and emerging leaders in Clark County while enhancing their leadership skills and understanding of key community issues, increasing their ability to serve as effective community leaders.
LCC’s leadership development program brings together individuals with diverse interests and expertise and challenges them to increase their knowledge of Clark County and deepen their community engagement. Since its founding in 1993, LCC’s leadership development program has graduated more than 800 leaders who support more than 100 employers and community organizations as key staff members, volunteers, board members and elected officials.
LCC’s leadership development program is a 9-month program that includes one full-day session each month from September through May and an extra day in October, January, and March. The program involves participants in practical and experiential activities that provide communication and interaction opportunities with key decision-makers in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors. Methodology is participatory including class work, group discussions, site tours and peer-to-peer learning.
Throughout the class year, LCC participants work in small teams on projects to benefit a community partner. These projects require a time commitment outside the monthly class sessions and allow participants to conceive, plan, and implement a solution to a real local need. Past projects have included a campaign to increase business participation in a science, technology, engineering, & mathematics (STEM) event; collaboration in development of an Aviation Mechanics Program at the Cascadia Technical Academy; and organization of a free community presentation on “Addiction and the Teenage Brain.”
To create a high quality learning environment, class size is limited to 36 students each year.
LCC accepts applications throughout the year for its 9-month leadership development program. Applications submitted prior to the end of May will be considered for the upcoming class year. Apply online today!
