Leadership Starke County is seeking nominations for the 6th community leadership training class which begins on September 22nd.  The class meets once each month from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. from September through May at locations around Starke County.  “Our goal this year is to have 12 adults and 3 high school students in the class,” according to Jim Jessup, class facilitator.  This unique curriculum provides young, emerging, and established leaders a new perspective on Starke County, including its history, culture, challenges and opportunities for the future.  Topics include leadership skills, networking, the social services, local government, economic development, education, law enforcement, and personal development.  There is even a bus trip around Starke County included. 

The training is perfect for new citizens, those wanting to learn more about the county, and anyone who is seeking to become more engaged and to make an impact on the future of Starke County.  Interaction with current community leaders and other class members is a key component of the experience. 

The cost of the program is $300 which includes meals, instruction, materials, and transportation.  Payment plans and partial scholarships may be available.  Deadline for acceptance into the program is September 15th.  Contact the Chamber Office (574-772-5548) info@starkecountychamber.com or Charmaine Dunkel at Community Services (574-772-7070) cdunkel@starkecs.com for dates, details, and an application form.
