The Leadership Indiana County program is designed for involved community participants who want to network with local leaders, increase their leadership skills, and desire to give back to their community through a community service project.

The program is designed for 25 – 45 year olds, but it is open to all. The desire is for the program to have a mix of professions represented including business, government, non-profit and education. Lunches will be provided and location of the sessions will vary. The cost is $1200 payable upon acceptance to the program and due before the Orientation session. There is a small grant program available for non-profits that are sponsoring a participant. Also, Indiana County Chamber members sponsoring a participant pay only $1000.
Participants must agree to make each meeting so the following paragraph is part of the application:
