About Leadership Akron
For over 30 years, Leadership Akron has equipped participants for community involvement and leadership. The signature Program offers intensive study of community issues and interaction with top decision-makers, enabling participants to expand their effectiveness as community leaders. In addition to the Signature Program, Leadership Akron empowers leaders across generations through its other programs.
About the Signature Program
Over the course of the year, Leadership Akron Class 34 will develop a well-rounded perspective on the Akron community and set the stage for further involvement as community leaders. Beginning the year with a City Tour and two-day Opening Retreat, they will spend a full day each month focusing on a specific aspect of the community. Topics include Social Services, Healthcare, Education, Justice and others. Each day gives the class a hands-on look at the key organizations, decision-makers and the issues in that sector of the Akron community. Upon graduation, the class will be poised with new knowledge, connections and commitments to empower their service to the Greater Akron community.
