Green Community Leadership Initiative

A program designed in collaboration with Leadership Akron to foster and encourage community engagement in the City of Green, Ohio.

Immerse yourself in a brand new, in-depth leadership program focused on Green's key assets with top decision-makers. The CLI is designed for business and community leaders who are interested in learning more about the community where they live, work and play. The six-session program held in the fall will address topics to stimulate a broader understanding of the social, economic, policy, and environmental issues impacting Green. The CLI will also provide participants with an avenue to become more engaged and help shape the city's future.

The Green CLI application for the fall is now closed.

Participants will:

  • Become more connected and engaged in the community
  • Learn more about civic organizations and the issues they face
  • Develop an understanding about how local public policy is developed and implemented
  • Network with peers
