Time Commitment: The LMC signature class is a 9-month program with an overnight retreat and 8 class sessions from September through May. Session days are 8 am to 5 pm at various locations throughout Montgomery County. Class members are expected to attend each of the session days. The class also works together on a class project to use their leadership skills to benefit the community. Class project time is decided by each class and each participant. This is LMC’s leadership laboratory, and our participants find that the benefit that they receive from it is usually directly related to the effort that they put in. Some class project participation is mandatory for the participant to graduate. Over the LMC year, average project-hours per class member: 40.
Tuition: Tuition is $1,500 and includes lunches and all materials.
