Grant to Benefit Leadership Allegany

Leadership Allegany June 2016Recently the Allegany County Area Foundation awarded a $600 grant to Leadership Allegany. This money will be used to sponsor a participant in the Leadership Allegany Program.
Leadership Allegany is a joint initiative of Houghton College and the Greater Allegany County Chamber of Commerce. This program provides a dynamic learning environment where adult professionals who live, work or have vested interest in Allegany County grow their leadership abilities, create connections, and impact their communities. Participants meet two times a month for ten months, including a full-day opening retreat.
Industry days provide participants with an in-depth, insider’s view of Allegany County industries through the professionals who lead them – including government, the judicial system, manufacturing, agriculture, and many more. They engage in site tours, hear from speakers, and enjoy panel discussions.
Curriculum sessions challenge participants to dig deep into their leadership values using the Social Model for Leadership, developed by the Higher Education Research Institute of UCLA. They begin by exploring their own personal strengths, moving gradually from the self to small group engagement to community impact.
