“Leadership Northern Poconos” is sponsored by The Chamber of the Northern Poconos. To download an application please click here.
The purpose of Leadership Northern Poconos is to educate a group of potential leaders residing or employed in Wayne or Pike Counties about all aspects of the community. Their education will allow them to gain a better, more in-depth knowledge of the community and thereby become better prepared to be our future leaders.
As a result of Leadership Northern Poconos, the area will have access to a well-educated group of individuals that is capable of providing leadership to the community and the many volunteer organizations that operate within it. These individuals will have a better understanding of the community’s strengths and weaknesses. They will have experienced teamwork by choosing, developing and completing a project during the ten to twelve month period of the program.
Our goal is to develop the future leaders of the area.
It is a one-year program that will entail spending one full day each month learning about such topics as an Overview of the County, Economic Development, County and Local Government, Criminal Justice, Health Care, Human and Social Services, Culture and Community, and all topics that are important to Wayne and Pike Counties. Classes are instructed by persons experienced in the preceding fields.
