The Leadership Oak Ridge Story
Entering its 30th program year, Leadership Oak Ridge is one of the longest continuously running community leadership programs in the United States. For the more than 1,000 graduates of the program, their Leadership Oak Ridge experience continues to make a difference in their personal and business lives. Most importantly, their experience continues to impact the Oak Ridge community.
Purpose & Goal
Leadership Oak Ridge graduates are introduced to Oak Ridge's challenges and opportunities. Each graduate is challenged to find their passion and commit to making a difference. Leadership Oak Ridge graduates can be found on virtually every board in our community including the arts, charitable groups, government, education and more. The graduates are sought after for leadership positions in the community and their careers due to the vast array of knowledge, experience and personal connections acquired through the program.
The Leadership Oak Ridge 2016 program will consist of 12 sessions conducted from February to November. Sessions will be all day and there will be two overnight trips. Out-of-class assignments, to include a class project, individual challenge, and session coordination, will round out the Leadership Oak Ridge experience.
In order to make the most of the Leadership Oak Ridge program, attendance at all sessions is mandatory. However, understanding that class members may have to miss a session, there will be opportunities for makeup credit available throughout the program year. The Attendance Policy will be reviewed during the Opening Session.
Tuition for the program is $1500 per person. A limited number of scholarships are available.
