Leadership Akron: Edge, a program offered by Torchbearers and Leadership Akron, serves as a conduit between college interns/early career professionals and established community leaders, as well as organizations and groups making a positive difference in our community, to show Akron’s advantages. Each Edge session offers access to community decision-makers and lessons for personal and professional success.


The summer program will consist of four Wednesday sessions as well as an orientation and closing reception with employers and community leaders. Sessions will cover topics that emphasize plugging in to the community, making connections that count, and leading by example.


The 2018 Edge program runs on the following Wednesdays from 4:30 to 7:00pm:

June 13 Orientation Session
June 20 Plugging into the Community
June 27 Strengths & Opportunities
July 11 Connections that Count
July 18 Leading by Example
July 25 Closing Reception

Participants may also engage in supplemental opportunities that will be available throughout the course of the program.
