The Adult Leadership for Five Seasons program is a 10-month experience limited to 35 selected applicants each year that runs from August through May. Adult LFS empowers participants with a comprehensive understanding of our community’s challenges and opportunities, while also providing broader knowledge of our region and the role future leaders can play as engaged citizens. Participants spend one Friday each month, outside of work, participating in customized leadership training and traveling within the city to learn about different aspects of the community. See below for the list of industry days and other commitments that each class member will participate in.
- Overnight Retreat (August)
- History Day
- Agriculture Day
- Human Needs Day
- Arts & Culture Day
- Entrepreneurial Day
- Health & Wellness Day
- Economic Development Day
- Government Day
- Education Day
- Class Project Day & Graduation (May)
Applications for Adult LFS are open each year during the month of April. The application includes an applicant form with several short answer questions and 2 letters of recommendation (one from the applicant’s supervisor and one from another reference). All individuals who complete an application for the LFS Adult program will receive an interview with the selection committee which consists of 12-14 program alumni. For additional questions, contact Rebecca Sullens.
