The Sherwood Trust Community Leadership Program was established by the Ford Institute for Community in 2000, and is funded by the Ford Family Foundation. This structured 60-hour curriculum is offered to citizens in small towns, such as Walla Walla. The objective is to cultivate community leadership skills with individuals from diverse backgrounds, from different economic and social sectors, and of diverse ages. An outcome of this program is for the class to identify a specific community project to be completed by the following winter quarter. This course is available to current participants in the Sherwood Trust Community Leadership Program only.
