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.


Team Untapped Leaders worked with CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Rock County to create a video to bring awareness to the mission and needs of the organization. This video includes CASA volunteers and their testimonials to aid in the recruitment efforts of new advocates. Untapped Leaders partnered with Drywater Productions and CASA to facilitate the video. The video will be used by CASA for future fundraising opportunities, their Facebook page and other recruitment efforts.
