Adult leadership classes are made up of professionals across a broad spectrum of businesses and organization in each of our counties. Each participant is nominated to take part in the leadership experience by their respective organizations.

Youth leadership training teaches leadership skills and local knowledge to area high-school students. These sessions are intended to expose young people to a variety of public issues while instilling more confidence in future leaders. It is an excellent way to help young people understand that communities are operated by the very citizens that they serve.

Both groups meet monthly from September through May at locations throughout each county. The goal is to instill each participant with a greater knowledge of local issues and a commitment to become and stay involved in the areas that interest them most.

The Leadership Institute is dedicated to bringing groups together to work towards the common goals of economic development and quality of life improvement for our region. We are assisting with a wide variety of projects across our 5 county region, and look forward to forging ever-stronger bonds between community leaders across the Salkehatchie.
