- Going back to school takes a lot of time and money, but there's another way you can get a step up in your career without stepping in the classroom.
Leadership Oneida County is a nine month course offered to people who strive to be leaders. About 100 graduates of the course come from various backgrounds but have the same reason to take it.
"Go through this course to learn more about their community and learn more about their personal strengths as leaders, and to build their own professional network. The point of the course is to really connect leaders to their community," said Tim Brown, UW-Extension Community Resource Development.
The deadline to join Leadership Oneida County is Friday. The course takes field trips each month to get a behind-the-scene look at how businesses operate in the area. Towards the end of the course you get assigned a service project.
"So you get to work with a non-profit or a community-serving organization to help them bring about something really positive. So not only do you learn but you also get to give back," said Brown.
The course does have a fee. However some partial scholarships are offered. If you are interested in applying, you can check out the link below.
