Participants selected for the Leadership Ames Class will listen to presentations, debate issues, participate in class activities, visit with area leaders, tour facilities and get to know individuals representing a broad cross-section of the community.
There are 12 class sessions that each focus on different themes. Participants are expected to attend all 12 sessions and a graduation evening event. After graduation, all class members will be assigned a day to facilitate for the next year’s class. In addition to the day sessions, class members also complete a group service project of their choosing.
The mission of the Leadership Ames programming is to develop leadership abilities and cultivate relationships to promote community involvement and advancement.
Class tuition is $1,000. Scholarships are available. We recommend working with your employer for tuition assistance as well.
