Our community is large and wildly diverse, which is at the same time our strength and our weakness. #Activate10 is a movement seeking to increase communication between individuals and organizations across Fremont County and to promote positive action in our communities.
“For those looking to make lasting connections within our community, I would highly recommend applying to Leadership Fremont County”
Leadership Fremont County’s purpose is to identify key individuals with leadership qualities and concern for the County’s future. For 16 years, this program has given professionals the opportunity to hone leadership skills, network, and gain a deeper understanding of the businesses, culture, and resources available throughout Fremont County.
The value of this training is top-notch, and a value for the county employers who want to invest in leadership training for their team. Participants receive an outstanding educational program that creates a better understanding of public policy issues, economic and social diversity, and the challenges facing our unique area of Wyoming. The program provides classroom instruction, class projects, and visits to area businesses.
This year’s class project, Eagles Hope Transitions, has been wildly successful. Over $7,000 was raised through the class and matching business donations. The class also built a playground for the children of residents to have a safe space to play.
Here is what Leadership Fremont County graduates have to say:
“LFC is a great leadership training program – the best I have ever seen. Over my career, I have been through 3 or 4 other programs, and LFC is the best. It provides a good mix of leadership development activities, networking opportunities, and exposure to county institutions and projects. It is especially good for those seeking career development, and upcoming leaders.” – Brad Tyndall, Ph.D., President, Central Wyoming College
“For those looking to make lasting connections within our community and Fremont County, I would highly recommend applying to Leadership Fremont County. The contacts our group made will be valuable networking tools for a long time to come!” -Eric Carr, Community Development Director for the City of Riverton
“Leadership Fremont County is an excellent way to learn more about your leadership potential and then put it into action, especially into a community service direction. It was one of the things that inspired me to run for City Council again because I was reminded that I should take what I learned and get out there! I highly recommend that you attend!” -Lance W.Goede, Director of Student Success Central Wyoming College
