Leadership Northeast was founded in 1981 in response to the community’s need for a steady supply of leaders who are both familiar with the general structure of the community, its problems and issues, and are also capable of organizing and directing the efforts of others. The Core program is designed to develop well-informed, motivated leaders who have the skills and commitment to work together to strengthen Northeastern Pennsylvania.
In 2015, Impact: Leadership in Education was launched to offer local education systems the same leadership development opportunities, as well as to bridge the gap between business and education. Impact is designed to empower educators from 17 districts through leadership skill development, business-education connection, community awareness and inter-district networking. Leadership Northeast is a private, non–sectarian, non–profit organization.
Leadership Northeast seeks to develop informed and committed leaders from all segments of the community who will serve, strengthen and improve Northeastern Pennsylvania.
Individuals interested in being a member of the Impact: Leadership in Education program should submit a completed application to the Leadership Northeast office by September 7, 2022. Applicants must have their support of their district and their administration. The Impact Selection Committee reviews each application. Applicants will be notified in writing of their acceptance.
Each year a maximum of 35 participants from participating school districts are selected. The diversity of each Leadership class is carefully considered. Given this factor and the limited class size, some highly qualified candidates are turned down each year. We encourage applicants to re-apply should they not be accepted the first time.
Monthly sessions are usually held from 8:00 a.m. to 3 p.m. at a variety of locations throughout Luzerne County. The opening program is mandatory. Program packets are designed to provide participants with background information relating to each topic. A commitment of personal time is also expected to work on School Impact Projects that identify and fulfill a need within the participant’s school district.
Act 48 hours are available for each participant.
