Leadership Oak Ridge
Leadership Oak Ridge is the flagship program of the Center for Leadership & Community Development. As one of the longest, continually running community leadership programs in the country, Leadership Oak Ridge boasts over 1,000 graduates.
The program begins in February each year and sessions are conducted approximately every three to four weeks for a full day. In addition, there are two overnight trips, a class project, out-of-class assignments and a graduation celebration in November. Participants learn about the issues and are challenged to discover how they can get involved and make a difference in the community where they live and/or work.
Tuition for the program is $1500 per person. Scholarships are available based on need and are awarded by the selection committee. Only those applicants that met the application deadline are considered for scholarship awards.
The application/nomination period for the 2019 program will open in October of 2018. Individuals are encouraged to submit their paperwork early as the class size is limited.
