Leadership for Five Seasons

Leadership for Five Seasons Adult and Youth participants have shown what it means to be a Leader during a year that marks insurmountable resiliency, flexibility and adaptability. When the pandemic hit our community, the decision was made to move forward with this meaningful program but with precautions and protocols in place. Safety measures were observed right away as interviews and orientations went virtual. We were able to kick off the Adult and Youth leadership experience in September, in-person, with mandatory masks, social distancing, individually wrapped meals and plenty of hand sanitizer! Some of the Adult and Youth sessions were postponed, but we are proud to say they are all rescheduled for the Spring of 2021.

LFS Alumni typically get together for a morning of volunteerism and breakfast before the holidays but due to the pandemic, they were still able to give back to the community – online! Alumni pulled together to raise money for a holiday gift drive benefitting Big Brothers Big Sisters of East Central Iowa.

As we reflect on all of the pivoting, challenges and changes that the Leadership for Five Seasons program endured in 2020, we realize that this encompasses all that leadership truly is.

Adult, Youth and Executive program applications will open April 1, 2021. If you have questions about this process, please contact Leadership Program and Administrative Specialist Jessica Komisar atjkomisar@cedarrapids.org.
