Are you interested in building your resources and skills to be a more effective leader in your community?  The Spartanburg County Foundation is currently accepting applications for its 2017 Grassroots Leadership Development Institute.

Each year, 32 dedicated individuals are selected to participate in the seven month leadership training program, which is designed to equip participants with the knowledge, skill-set, and resources to be effective in leading change at the grassroots level. Participants meet one Saturday a month, March – August with a graduation ceremony in September, to increase their ability to make a positive difference in their neighborhoods and in the greater Spartanburg community. Topics such as developing leadership and organization skills, strengthening communication, leveraging community assets, and thinking strategically will be addressed.
