Project Lead

Waverly Project LEAD
Use your leadership abilities to better our community

Waverly Project LEAD has been revamped in 2021-22 to provide more professional development and educational programming that will benefit participants, their employers and the community. During eight monthly meetings, participants will identify their unique leadership skills and how to apply them to the benefit of Waverly and their employer. All participants will help develop and complete a group service project to demonstrate their knowledge and commitment to their community. In addition, the program continues to offer valuable opportunities for networking and behind-the-scenes tours of many Waverly organizations. Please join us for this exciting series.

Program Fees (covers all educational materials and food)

Chamber Members: $750

Non-Chamber Members: $900

$250 Scholarships Available
If your employer cannot cover the entire cost of Project LEAD, $250 scholarships are available through the application process thanks to our generous sponsors.
