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.”
