Why Leadership Winston-Salem?
This program has helped to create a more leader-full community since 1984. We give participants unique behind-the-scenes insights about current needs and issues facing our community and by orienting them to our city’s rich history and resources. Participants are better equipped to assume a more active volunteer leadership role in addressing community needs. Due to program demand and class composition, it’s not uncommon to take multiple application years to be selected. All class positions are open each year, and application does not guarantee selection.
Tuition is $2,700 and payable by September 4, 2020.
Please note, payment of tuition is preferred by check.
