ABOUT THE PROGRAM
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.
HOW IT WORKS
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.
