Civic Engagement Projects

  Community engagement is a guiding principle of Leadership Palm Beach County. 

We empower leadership class members to take active roles in the community through our interactive curriculum as well as year-long civic engagement partnerships with civic organizations.  Civic engagement projects utilize the intellectual capacity of each class to address the needs and goals of civic organizations in Palm Beach County.

All members of the Leadership Engage Program partner with Palm Beach County nonprofit and governmental organizations to complete a civic engagement project.  This year's class selected four community partners and will spend nine months conducting research, developing materials and presenting their findings in order to empower these organizations to reach their goals.
