FLDP classes are held about twice a month, September through March, at different locations throughout the county. Classes typically include speakers involved in county activities, followed by a lively discussion and a chance to chat with county leaders. Class members also typically take on a group project to help the help the county. Last year’s class organized the highly successful spring Volunteer Fair at Fluvanna High School. Tuition is $35 and scholarships are available. Visit Fluvannaleadership.com for more information and the application.
