The inaugural class of Bergen LEADS, Bergen County’s first community leadership program, recently celebrated its “graduation”. Bergen LEADS is a 10-month experiential learning and leadership curriclum designed to prepare aspiring and acknowledged leaders to tackle the unique challenges and embrace the opportunities in Bergen County.
Under the guidance of former Bergen County Executive William “Pat” Schuber, who serve as the LEADS Seminar Director, participants are immersed in stimulating courses that not only introduce them to topical issues of local importance, but also enable them to explore their leadership styles, enhance their leadership capacity and become meaningfully engaged in helping to solve strategic issues facing Bergen County.
