The Program


Develop and cultivate your skills, awareness, and engagement through intentional learning experiences for the betterment of McLean County.


Here’s what LMC can do for you:

  1. Develop informed, vigorous citizen leadership skills capable of understanding community problems, fact-finding, analyzing and influencing the decisions based on these facts.
  2. Create awareness of the community by utilizing talents of committed citizens to work with responsible voluntary positions with non-profit, civic and citizen organizations within the community.
  3. Provide you with a broad understanding of public issues, workings of state and local government, civic challenges facing all of us and the role the community play in problem-solving.

Classes tentatively take place every other Friday from September through April covering a variety of topics & skill development, both in the classroom and through “hands-on” experiences. Class members also participate on a  "Leaders On Loan Task Force Project" team to create implementable solutions to a community issue.
