The Leadership Cohort will be limited to 24 participants who will meet five times from September 20 and December 13 to encourage interaction, discussion, and exploration of course topics and how the concepts relate to real world challenges. Individuals wishing to participate in the Leadership Cohort will be required to attend all five sessions. The package includes 9 educational courses, all training materials and opportunities to network with other Parks and Recreation Professionals. The package cost is $499.
