The mission of Leadership Bartow is to build a broad-based network of community leaders who enhance their leadership abilities and skills through continuing education, shared perspectives, and community involvement to work towards enriching the quality of life and shaping the future of Bartow County. The program focuses on developing a diverse pool of leaders for Bartow County, while providing opportunities for team-building, mentorship, personal development, and community involvement.
Leadership Bartow requires a strong commitment and dedication to the program. The program kicks off with a two-day retreat held in August and concludes with a graduation celebration in February. Each session in between covers leadership competences while exploring Bartow’s rich history and growing future.
