Press play to find out why you should be a part of Leadership Athens County! 


Leadership Athens County is a nine-month course, from September through May, aimed at developing a corps of informed citizens to provide dynamic community leadership.

Participants explore Athens’ economic, political, social and cultural landscape through discussions of current issues and conversations with community leaders. Leadership Athens also helps participants develop and understand their own leadership style. This is a tremendous opportunity for both personal and professional growth.

The goals and objectives for Leadership Athens are to:

  • Identify and select highly motivated and/or emerging community leaders to participate in the program;
  • Systematically challenge the participants to become aware of, to examine and to respond to the social, economic and environmental needs of the community;
  • Develop an esprit de corps among the participants, which will provide a common ground for working together on present and future community needs.
