The Leadership Lackawanna core program class of 2013-2014 met on Sept. 12 for its first session, which included an orientation and an introduction to leadership basics. As part of the 10-month Leadership Lackawanna program, class participants are assigned to complete various community service projects. Several have continued on through the work of the respective groups/agencies and are still quite notable, such as the Restoration of Hanlon’s Grove at Nay Aug Park and Dress for Success Lackawanna. Group projects build teamwork skills, develop resourcefulness and engender a sense of accomplishment through the impact they have on the community. All projects impact the community, address a need and result in a tangible end product.Leadership Lackawanna announces the 2013-2014 Core Program Class.
