The Leadership Stoughton program is conducted over a nine-month period. The program will concentrate on major issues impacting our community. Topics such as our culture; government; education system; volunteerism; the environment; local business; health and human services; and others will be addressed in presentations beginning with an orientation in September and continue until May. One session will look at leadership from an academic perspective. The half-day sessions will begin at 8:00 a.m. and conclude by Noon. Most sessions will include a tour of sites and locations pertinent to the topic of the session.
At each session participants will interact with individuals in our community who are knowledgeable "experts" in their particular areas of interest. Participants will gain specific knowledge of the issues facing Stoughton and will understand the implications and impacts of those issues on the broader community. At each session, participants will also hear from one of Stoughton’s acknowledged leaders who will candidly discuss their personal perspectives on leadership.
One of the most popular portions of the Leadership program is the "community project". The hands-on work done on these projects has been of lasting benefit not just to the participants but to our community as well. Participants will again be offered the opportunity to select a community project that they will work on over the course of the program.
Tuition for the Leadership Stoughton program is $350 per enrollee. This includes all materials, food, refreshments and tour costs. Payment is due prior to the first session unless other arrangements have been made.
