Without Community Leadership any local community will devolve into chaos. Being a leader in your community means that you are responsible for making decisions that will help improve the community as a whole. This might include working with local government officials to get things done, or organizing events and programs that will bring people together.
Local leaders within a community who care deeply about helping the community and have the ability to influence the people living there will have the greatest impact.https://nytimesineducation.com/spotlight/the-power-of-local-leadership/
In the Community Leadership category, we will discuss things like:
- How to get involved in the community
- Your role in the local community
- Leadership skills
- much more!
- A local disaster like a tornado hits your community. Do you know where you can make the biggest impact immediately? Can you identify existing resources/services to reduce duplication of effort?
- The local school board is moving in a direction that no longer reflects the values of parents or the local community. Do you know what actions you can take? Do you know who to contact?
- A local election is happening in two months. Do you know how to evaluate your candidates?
