Purdue Extension’s Community Leadership Program is a locally hosted leadership development course for adults who want to make a difference in their communities. Through this series of 11 interactive modules, participants learn about their own leadership capacity, the people, organizations and institutions that make up their communities and how they can engage in serving their communities more deeply.
In many Indiana counties, the new Community Leadership Program is developing into an annual offering that engages many community partners in preparing the next generation of leaders. Participants completing all the course requirements receive an official Purdue Certificate.
The Purdue Extension Community Leadership Program is a statewide program in Indiana for people who want to make a difference in their communities. There are many individuals who are willing to give their time and talents to serve the needs of others. However, it is often difficult to find individuals who are willing to step up to the plate to serve in leadership roles. Confident, skilled and knowledgeable leaders are needed to inspire, lead and build dynamic and viable organizations and communities.
Purdue Extension saw an opportunity to increase the capacity of existing and emerging leaders through an 11-module leadership development training program hosted by county Extension Educators, facilitated by trained Purdue Extension staff and built on research-based curriculum taught via online videos. The program complements the existing community leadership programs in Indiana and is intended to foster new leadership development programs in communities where none exist.
