The Future Milwaukee community leadership program, offered through the Klingler College of Arts and Sciences and the Center of Urban Research, Teaching, and Outreach, is currently recruiting individuals for its nine-month program. Participants meet twice per month on Monday evenings from mid-September 2018 through mid-May 2019 and receive a certificate of completion upon graduation.
Program participants examine their personal strengths and challenges, and learn best practices in team building and collaboration. In the process, students engage directly with community leaders in organizations throughout Milwaukee County who are key to the community’s vitality and health. As part of the nine-month experience, Future Milwaukee participants work in teams collaborating with citizens and organizations to implement a project. In addition, each student receives one-on-one leadership coaching and each project team is mentored in group dynamics.
Applications are available online; the deadline to apply is Monday, July 16. Students interested in scholarship aid must also complete the scholarship application within the same time-frame.
