Celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, Leadership Seacoast has been instrumental in bringing awareness to some of the key issues affecting the region by developing a base of knowledgeable and active citizens through participation in its educative and experiential program. Each January through June, participants take part in a series of interactive workshops through which they discover the often challenging issues within a wide range of topics including education, arts and culture, economic development, government, and health and human services. Participants learn from experts in a variety of fields and come to understand the causal relationships connecting these diverse topics. The program aims to inspire graduates to take action within their communities.
