The curriculum includes a balanced combination of retreats, day-long seminars (Challenge Days) and small group activities.
- Retreats - Two overnight retreats, held in September and February, focus on developing personal and civic leadership skills. Each retreat lasts two days.
- Challenge Days - Once a month participants get to spend a day focusing on a significant challenge facing the region such as education, health care, the environment or the regional economy. Each Challenge Day features guest speakers who are experts on the topic being covered, as well as a number of experiential activities.
- Leadership Learning Labs - The program features two small group activities. One focused on exploring effective leadership with local leaders and the other focused on applying leadership by working on a project sponsored by a local non-profit organization.
