Civic Boot Camp


A Unique Leadership Experience for Young Professionals


Research has shown that people who are engaged in a community are more likely to stay in the place where they live and work. Young professionals want to work for companies that invest, encourage, and support their engagement in the community and their leadership outside of the work environments.


Civic Boot Camp was designed to help Indy’s future leaders learn how to think about their volunteer work in the community, starting from direct involvement in projects and moving into larger leadership roles on nonprofit boards. Young professionals will have an opportunity to reflect on how they want their community leadership story to read.


This two-day uniquely-designed program focuses on what community leadership is, how to get engaged in solving problems bigger than any one person can do, and how to chart a long-term course for community leadership. Prepare for compelling conversations!
