Leadership Franklin County is composed of 3 programs – Community, Youth, and Advanced. The Youth Program is based on the Community Program and is offered free to 24 10th graders in Franklin County. All Franklin County schools are welcome to participate. The Advanced Program is open to anyone and brings in a National Speaker each year to address Leadership Topics. Speakers have included Lance Secretan, Steve Arneson, & Scott Eblin. The third and oldest program is the Community Program which I am going to speak about today.

DISCUSSION POINTS Class is divided into several project teams. Project Selections come about as a result of Requests For Proposals sent to organizations throughout the County and from past program years. Planning: Students receive training on project planning, have time between their half-day sessions to work on their projects, and also meet outside of program hours. Execution: The goal for all project teams is to select a project that can be implemented before graduation. Some projects, however, take longer. And at times, there are projects that don’t make it to implementation, either because the scope was too large or because of unforeseen circumstances. However everything results in learning, the ultimate goal. Feel free to ad lib about your own project experience here.
