MILWAUKEE –The Future Milwaukee Community Leadership Program, offered through Marquette University’s College of Professional Studies, is currently recruiting individuals for its nine-month program. Participants meet two times each month on Monday evenings from mid-September 2015 through mid-May 2016 and receive a certificate of completion upon graduation.

Applications are available online; the deadline to apply is Friday, July 17. Students applying for scholarship aid must complete the program and scholarship application by Friday, July 10.

Program participants will examine their leadership capabilities, focus on expanding skills, and explore best practices in team building and collaboration. In the process, students engage directly with community leaders in organizations throughout Milwaukee County who are key to the community’s vitality and health. As part of that journey, Future Milwaukee participants work in teams collaborating with citizens and organizations to implement a project (examples of class projects are available online). In addition, each student receives one-on-one leadership coaching and each team is mentored in group dynamics.

“Future Milwaukee is a place where students experience personal and professional development; where relationships are born – where students discover Milwaukee County’s greatest assets and challenges, and engage with community leaders,” Executive Director Christine Hill said. “Students are encouraged to build stronger commitments to and an understanding of how to make a lasting and positive difference in this place we call home.”

Since 1978, the Future Milwaukee leadership program, which since 2005 has been housed in Marquette’s College of Professional Studies, has been building a diverse group of ethically based leaders among all sectors of the Milwaukee community. To date, there are more than 1,600 Future Milwaukee graduates who serve as leaders in business, nonprofit, government and community organizations throughout the region.
