Leadership Portage County is accepting applications for the class of 2018.

The nine-month educational leadership development program begins with a two-day retreat in September. Following the opening retreat, class members meet one day per month for eight months. Each day is built around a theme designed to engage class members in a deeper understanding of the community where they live and work.

Class members go behind the scenes to learn about the challenges and opportunities facing Portage County. A primary goal of the class is to develop ideas around initiatives to improve Portage County while enhancing leadership skills. As part of the program, class members also plan and implement a project designed to benefit the community.

Tuition for the nine-month program is $1,750. It may be paid by the applicant, the applicant's employer or a sponsor. For more information contact the Leadership Portage County office at 330-673-5724.

Interested individuals may download the application from the Leadership Portage County website at www.leadershipportagecounty.org. Those without computer access may call 330-673-5724 to receive an application by mail. Candidates must live or work in Portage County to participate in the program. The deadline to apply is July 14.
