Leadership York gives participants a year-long education about the York community from touring local government facilities, meeting with officials and leaders, to observing the inner workings of the city and county. Positive and active leadership is the core of any stable community, and the objectives set forth in the Leadership York curriculum help secure that type of leadership for many generations to come. “If you want one year of prosperity, grow grain. If you want 10 years of prosperity, grow trees. If you want 100 years of prosperity, grow people.”

Classmates will also be required to attend at least one of the 3 meetings listed: York City Council Meeting, Commissioner Meeting, and/or York Education Board Meeting during your year of Leadership York. It would be a good idea to attend one of these before December. That way if something comes up you are able to attend before March. You MUST attend one of these meetings.
