In the months that follow, the class is immersed in experiences that address specific aspects of our community.
Each session day gives participants a hands-on look at what is happening in that field; the opportunity to hear from leaders of organizations and the key issues they are addressing; often site visits and first-hand accounts of those who deliver services to the community are part of many sessions.
Each day-long experience is designed by Leadership Howard County alumni and other professionals who have expertise in the area of focus.
In addition to each month’s day-long session, class members may take part in “learning opportunities” or experiential site visits to unique locations that provide a deeper understanding of issues, attractions or topics in the community and work on community impact projects.
