Throughout Leadership Kenosha, participants work together in small teams to complete a project submitted by local businesses and organizations. Projects can vary from helping to plan special events, creating fundraising plans and more. A “Project of the Year” is selected by a panel of LK Steering Committee members and alumni after sitting in on project summary presentations.

This year’s teams worked closely together with American Legion Post 21, Shalom Center, Sharing Center and United Way of Kenosha County.

“Kenosha County is full of extraordinary leaders, and Leadership Kenosha participants are exemplary in their dedication and service to our community,” says Dave Strash, President and CEO at KACC. “There’s been a lot to celebrate in my first year as president at Kenosha Chamber of Commerce. The Leadership Kenosha graduation is an especially exciting celebration because we are congratulating existing and emerging leaders on their leadership growth.”

Leadership Kenosha is currently accepting applications for the 2022-23 class, which runs from September through May.
