Over the past year there has been a group of citizens testing out a new opportunity for Excelsior Springs citizens and those working here. The Thrive Excelsior Citizens Leadership Academy is designed to help participants understand local systems of government, health and wellness, education, housing and the economy, as well as strengthen their individual leadership skills. It’s meant to be a learning component for those who are seeking leadership roles within the community.
The Citizens Leadership Academy kicks off in February and is open to the public, for its first full cohort. This 7-session interactive experience is designed for new and seasoned community leaders! Thrive Excelsior will allow you to participate in community field trips and learn from community leaders on a wide range of important topics. Citizens are encouraged to consider participating and sharing with their organizations and colleagues. Space is limited, so learn more and apply online today by clicking here. Applications are due by January 31, 2023.
