Application period opens for next Leadership Kitsap class

Leadership Kitsap Foundation is now accepting applications for its Class of 2014.

The mission of Leadership Kitsap is to educate, prepare and connect a new group of committed leaders for community involvement in Kitsap County. The foundation's vision is to create a community where there is a diverse network of effective leaders educated in public policy issues and committed to serving as stewards.

The intensive training program runs for 10 months, and programs are designed to help participants acquire not only a fuller sense of the wide array of critical issues affecting the Kitsap community but also the skills necessary to motivate and engage others in collaborative efforts to resolve them. The curriculum also includes participation in a community project.

The application deadline is April 15.
