Educating, connecting and energizing leadersto serve and improve the community.


The most memorable aspect of the program is the feelings it evoked. A lot of us who go through the program spend most of our time at work thinking, and not enough time feeling. But the program is just one feeling after the other. One particularly memorable thing was the school experience. We were asked to teach a class full of first graders for 20 minutes. Even though I spent the first 10 years of my professional life as a teacher, I was still scared to death to go up there and teach. But that particular experience ended up being incredibly moving for me.”
