Extension supports leadership programs that are place-based, industry-specific, and issue-focused. We connect individuals to the networks, tools, and knowledge they need to shape desired changes in their communities. Extension educators:

  • deliver leadership programs in partnership with local partners.
  • assist programs with curriculum design, content delivery, and program evaluation.
  • offer professional development and networking opportunities for individuals who run leadership programs.
