Boone County Leadership’s mission is to build a strong community by bringing together a diverse group of emerging and existing leaders to enhance their leadership involvement, increase their community knowledge, and inspire their commitment to serve.
Boone County Leadership is a not-for-profit program that provides local training to expand community and philanthropic leadership. Operating out of United Way of Central Indiana’s Boone County headquarters, the program acquaints participants with the county’s economic, civic, governmental and social structure, preparing them to become better informed and involved citizens.
The first community leadership training program was formed in Philadelphia in 1959. Boone County’s first graduating class was in 1991.
