Each Leadership Development Academy of Rock County participant works with a small group of their fellow class members to plan and execute a collaborative project that addresses a community need. These projects and their results are presented each May and serve as the program's capstone experience.
Through the Eyes of Rock County Veterans
This team is embarking on a project to serve Rock County veterans. They will be documenting veterans’ stories and turning the stories into a video. The finished product will be revealed in a community showing on May 5, where the financial proceeds will be donated to VetsRoll. They will use the funds to send more veterans to Washington D.C. and provide medical packs for the trips. Additional funds raised will be donated for veterans’ mental illness needs.
