Mission

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. 

2024-2025 Program Sessions

 Leadership Southeast Vermont is an intensive interactive 10 month 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. 

The program starts with an Orientation Day in September and ends with Graduation in June.

* Sessions are held the first Thursday of each month and run from 8am-5pm unless otherwise noted.
