The Leadership Spokane program is an intensive, 10-month commitment to personal growth, professional development and community service. Participants gain an understanding of the roles and responsibilities of a citizen-leader and explore the tenets of servant leadership. At the same time, they develop a broad knowledge of the Spokane community and key issues facing the region. This knowledge is put into practice throughout the program through site visits and community service activities. Finally, participants build a strong local network while also learning to create a personal leadership vision and a plan to achieve it.
Topics covered during the course of the program include:
- Servant Leadership
- Regional Economy
- Healthy Community
- Human Needs
- Media and Communication
- Intercultural Competence/Diversity
- The Arts
- Community Involvement
