During their second year, Leadership Academy members combine their talents and resources to complete a project that will benefit our member institutions.  Working on either the Post-Secondary, K-12, or Community Service team, groups plan, promote, and pilot their project during the year and ultimately present it to the board of directors for possible future sustainability/implementation.
