Requirements: Applicants must be at least 21 years of age and are required to either reside or work in Angelina County. Tuition for the program is $1200, which covers costs of some meals and transportation, training materials and speakers.
The Program: Leadership Lufkin is a nine-month program designed to identify and educate the existing and potential leaders of Lufkin and Angelina County. It consists of day-long sessions targeted at orienting the class to particular aspects of the community, such as the health care, social services, local/county/state government, education, economic development, and quality of life in Angelina County. The program also includes classroom-style leadership skills training.
The program requires participation in a two-day opening retreat with a ropes course, a two-day or three-day stay in Austin to study state government, and two-day participation at the annual Angelina County Science & Tech Fair. The class is also required to attend a City Council Meeting, an Angelina County school board meeting, a County Commissioner's meeting, a Lufkin Police Department Ride-Along, and 6-8 hours of volunteer work at one of our many non-profit organizations. The program, which is strongly supported by the community, allows class members to become acquainted with volunteer opportunities and needs in their Chamber and in their community.
Financial Assistance: If you require financial assistance, a letter explaining your request must be included with your application. Upon acceptance into the program tuition is due in full. Limited scholarships may be available. Click here for a copy of the Scholarship Request.
