Our mission is to develop dynamic leaders that are qualified and focused on the future. This interactive experience provides background information and the necessary tools to be a positive presence in the community.

This program lasts from September to May, and the Leadership Fort Dodge class spends the second Thursday of every month discussing pertinent topics in the community. Through this program, participants gain the knowledge that they need to get involved in the community and business community.
