Leadership Clinton is a comprehensive educational program designed to reach a diverse base of emerging leaders and develop them into informed, motivated community participants. Participants who are accepted to the program on a bi- annual basis attend monthly sessions January through June about relevant and pressing topics that affect and impact the City of Clinton.
In addition to leadership training, areas of instruction include quality of life issues, community development, city government, education system, economic development, and local history.
Team projects are also an important feature to the program. Since the inception of Leadership Clinton in 1991, there have been more than 300 graduates who have been actively involved in projects that have made a tremendous impact on the City of Clinton. Some examples of Leadership Clinton projects are the fundraising and volunteer coordination to build Kids’ Towne Playground and the Olde Towne Courtyard, the purchasing and installing of an additional swing bay and ADA compliant seat at Brighton Park, providing the funding for a plaque that tells the story of the Fallen Comrade statue at the Visitor Center and many other projects involving education, recreation, beautification, and community.
