To be a leader, you must first know yourself, then your community. Leadership Keweenaw is the ideal program for preparing our leaders of tomorrow. This programs builds our leadership talent to positively impact our economy, environment, and society.
This Program will provide you with the steps to design your life, create a roadmap of your goals, and hear from leaders in the community who are experts in various fields. The Program has a component focused on the Design Your Life program, the New York Times best selling book on how to build a well lived life. It also aims to integrate participants into our community.
Participants are required to attend all sessions and complete any and all assignments. Leadership Keweenaw Program sessions are typically held on the third Thursday of each month, except for February (see program schedule for specific dates). The program concludes with a graduation program.
To successfully complete the Peninsula Leadership program and graduate, participants are required to:
• Attend a minimum of 5 full-day sessions
• Complete any and all homework assignments (whether a session is missed or not)
