West Linn Leadership Academy participants receive an in-depth education about West Linn affairs. Each Leadership Academy cohort builds connections with City leaders and each other as they learn about West Linn’s complexities and trade-offs.
Each curriculum session includes social time at which the Leadership Academy will spend time with each other and the session’s presentation team.
Each curriculum session lasts approximately three hours, and is structured to include dinner and significant time for inquiry and reflection on the presented topic areas.
Participants are encouraged to seek additional understanding about topic areas outside of the curriculum session, but this is not a requirement.
Upon conclusion of the Leadership Academy, each cohort will graduate with the expectation and understanding that they will pursue future community service activities.
