Leadership Highlands

The Leadership Highlands program has been developing local leaders since the pilot class graduated in 2000. The mission of the Leadership Highlands program is to develop Leaders with a thorough understanding of, and strong sense of commitment to, Highlands County and an appreciation for the strength found in our County’s abundant diversity.

Founded and nurtured by the three Highlands County Chambers of Commerce and select alumni, who comprise the Leadership Highlands Advisory Board, the goals of the program are to familiarize the participants with the infrastructure, agencies and economic enterprises that exist in Highlands County; to expose the participants to the range of needs in the community and to identify the resources available to meet those needs; to provide participants the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with each other and existing community leaders, so as to learn from the backgrounds and perspectives of one another; and to encourage civic participation and volunteer involvement in the community.

Each graduating class includes an orientation in August, a retreat in September, nine monthly themed sessions that include an overnight trip to Tallahassee, and a graduation ceremony in June. For information about enrollment or participation, please contact Kris Juve at 863-784-7189.
