Community leadership programs
Leadership and civic engagement programs
How we work with program sponsors
Our program sponsors make a difference in their communities. They invite Extension to bring leadership education to their communities. They recruit participants from their communities. They manage the program so that Extension educators can focus on delivering education. They give us important input so that we can design and deliver programs that make a difference.
