Strong leadership is a vital part of our resilient and solution-focused community. As our community is facing new challenges with the true impact still unknown, it is even more important for York County to have strong leaders who are aware of the needs and strengths of the community. For over 40 years, Leadership York has been focused providing the tools, connections, and resources to take individual skill sets and apply them in the ways that are going to impact the York community most effectively and positively.
The Leadership Training Program (LTP) is a nine-month experiential course where participants learn about York County, get more involved in the community, and begin to make a difference right away. LTP sessions provide an insider's view of York, its people and its issues. Community leaders and leading subject matter experts conduct the sessions covering topics such as human services, the economy, education, law and justice, understanding diversity, government, and health care. Participants fine-tune their leadership skills, enhance their knowledge, and receive guidance in choosing and applying for a board, elected, or appointed position. This program also provides access to additional opportunities for partnerships and new business relationships.
Leadership for Diverse Schools (LDS) is a nine-month experiential course for individuals in the K-12 education sector. Educators learn and develop skills in such diversity topics as trauma and resilience, socio-economic differences, adverse childhood experiences, race, religion, and LGBTQ issues. Local professionals and experts share information and strategies with the class to build awareness and understanding. Class members then are charged with returning to their districts as change agents to educate colleagues and employ strategies and initiatives to promote understanding, acceptance, and tolerance of all learners to create a culturally competent community.
We do what we do so our alumni can make a difference and are so proud and humbled to be able to continue training, connecting, and inspiring future community leaders even during these uncertain times.
