A community can choose its future

The NRACF has taken an active role in seeding our community's future with healthy and equipped leaders, ensuring that the pool of leaders grows potentially over time.

The Leadership Trust Initiative (LTI) is a year-long program sponsored by the Foundation. It is actively building a growing network of established and emerging community leaders who understand the history and spirit of the community. These leaders are equipped to respond to community needs and challenges in a healthy, collaborative manner. This network of people make a difference within all segments of our community including schools, businesses, local government, and community service.

Each program begins in May and ends with a commissioning celebration in March. After the first two years of this program, the network is 49 leaders strong. Just visualize the potential after only 10 years, with a network of almost 250 engaged, forward-looking leaders!

Contact the foundation or one of the board members if you or someone you know would like to participate in this program. The participants will tell you, the growth isn't only happening on the outside – there is some special growth and affirmation that occurs within each person who makes the choice.
