About:

United Way Leadership St. Joseph is an annual, year-long leadership development program for adults who live or work in the St. Joseph area. This program creates a network of trained individuals who are willing to engage in leadership and community courses while cultivating unique skills and an enhanced knowledge of this community's opportunities, realities, and challenges.

In 2022, the classes will be held from 9:00am - 4:30pm on the second Thursday of each month January – December. We cover such topics as education, health, business, arts, social services and community history. Tuition for each participant is $1500.

Class size is limited; only 28 participants are selected each year. The application should be submitted to the United Way offices by mail, email or drop-off.
