Leadership Southeast Vermont prepares leaders to affect change in our communities. The program is designed to create an understanding of obligation and commitment to becoming "trustees" of our communities.

Leadership Southeast Vermont brings together people of diverse backgrounds, experiences and views, who have a strong interest in becoming active leaders in their communities. Prior experience is not necessary. What is required is a genuine concern about the future of Southern Vermont.

Leadership Southeast Vermont is an intensive interactive program. Each meeting focuses on a community theme. Through presentations, group discussions, field trips, and class projects, participants are immersed in the many aspects and complexities of the issues facing our communities. 

Leadership Southeast Vermont is designed to develop an increased knowledge and understanding of the issues and challenges facing our communities. The curriculum creates an awareness of the needed resources and their ability to meet those challenges.

LSEVT is a great opportunity to learn about all of the different surrounding communities. Lots of great information and connections with great people.”
