Vision 2040 Leadership has been awarded a $5000 grant from the Southwest Initiative Foundation to address sustainability planning for this program. The grant will be used to fund activities for the Design Team to develop an ongoing funding plan and structure for the program to support education for current and past participants as well as coordination of the program. Work on the development and implementation of this plan will occur during fiscal year 2017.
Vision 2040 Leadership is a 9 month leadership program for individuals who live and work in the Willmar Lakes Area which is considered to be all of Kandiyohi County.
I am excited to make a difference and feel confident to do so!
“I'm honored to be part of Vision 2040 and the team that is forging the future of the Willmar Lakes Area community. We are a strong vibrant community that works hard and works together through partnerships and collaborative efforts. This spark of leadership for this is caused by people willing to risk failure to reach for success. We have seen there's no limit to what a group can do if the individuals don't care who gets the credit.”
I made connections with community members and found many common visions. I have begun to get more active in the community due to the connections.
