Leadership Del Rio was established to inspire community members to actively participate in local affairs, and thereby contribute to Del Rio’s continued growth and future success. The program's primary goal is to help prepare and encourage young professionals to be agents of change.
Leadership Del Rio offers participants the opportunity to learn more about local history, culture, government, economy, and resources as well as about the challenges we face as a community. Students bring many different perspectives to the program, and the group conversations and collaborations enables them to share ideas that create paths to our stronger tomorrow.
Over time, the establishment of a network of community leaders is one of the greatest benefits of Leadership Del Rio. After completing the program, graduates are encouraged to continue using the knowledge gained and network developed to pursue opportunities that make a difference in our community, both in leadership roles and as active team members. Recognizing the strengths and needs of our community is the first step in effectively pursuing change and growth.
