Fluvanna Leadership Development Program

The Fluvanna Leadership Development Program is accepting applications until August 15 for its 13th class beginning in September. Previous students have called the class “an invaluable look into the workings of our local county government,” and a gateway to a larger role in the county, volunteering, and other activities. 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.
