Palmetto Leadership Program Components

The Palmetto Leadership program contains three important phases: personal leadership development training, community awareness, and a task force activity that addresses contemporary community issues.

  • Personal Leadership Development includes skills development in leadership styles, communication, team building, conflict management, group dynamics, and self-understanding.
  • Community Awareness provides participants with the opportunity to learn more about their community including topics such as economic and community development, health-care, government and law, service, education, and communications.
  • Task Force Activity provides a team approach to addressing public needs.  Participants divide into “Task Force” groups to complete a class project that will improve the quality of life in their community.
