Program Goals 

In each Western Connecticut Leadership (WCL) session, we have strived to provide keen insights into issues impacting the community through top-notch education and off-the-record conversations with state and local political and community leaders. We have worked to accomplish this by:

1. Introducing participants to exciting community projects through relevant on-site visits.

2. Encouraging new relationships and dialogue among class participants and expert speakers about issues relevant to maintaining and growing thriving Connecticut communities.

3. Connecting program participants with volunteer opportunities in which they can apply their specific passions, skills, and talents in meaningful ways.
