We are currently recruiting for the 2021 Quest class. Learn more here.
A core component of our signature Quest program is community engagement. Participants connect with the community to identify needs and form diverse task forces to address these needs. Since 1986, these task forces have developed projects related to children and youth, community and economic development, arts and culture, support for the homeless and more. The experience creates a process for self discovery and growth – Quest participants return to their organizations with stronger relational and leadership skills that they also apply to the communities in which they live and work. This year, the 2020 Quest class had to get creative with their projects as we were thrust into a global pandemic just as they were developing their ideas. It was truly a hands on lesson in adaptive leadership.
