Adult Class

A new class of 20 to 25 participants is selected each year from a list of applicants. In January, they participate in an Opening Retreat, at which they learn more about themselves, leadership styles, and the challenges facing the county. In addition, they are self assigned to a Team Capstone project that addresses a current need.

Each month they meet for a full day as a group to learn more about a facet of life in Hendricks County - everything from the educational system to how the jail operates. In November, they convene for a Closing Retreat to review what they've learned and present their Team Capstone projects.

Along the way, they learn that leaders aren't an elite class of people. They're ordinary citizens who step up to help their communities, churches, organizations and workplaces accomplish what needs to be done. And upon graduating, they become part of an ever-growing Network of Leaders serving Hendricks County.

Youth Leadership Hendricks County

In 1998, we added Youth Leadership Hendricks County, a similar program for high school sophomores. The primary purpose of Youth Leadership Hendricks County is to develop leadership potential, foster civic awareness, promote responsible volunteerism, and encourage young leaders to make a lifelong commitment to the Hendricks County community.

The youth program is designed for high school sophomores and its schedule is synchronized with the school year. Five students from each of the county's six public high schools and a few students from private/home schools are chosen for the program. Class sessions focus on leadership skills and the many components of life in Hendricks County. These include government, business, agriculture, public safety, and infrastructure.
