Ready to lead a legacy?

Leadership Medina County Legacy Leaders program provides leadership skills enrichment for retired leaders in the community. Through the program, they are introduced to opportunities to share their wisdom to help make our community’s nonprofits stronger. Legacy Leaders leverages the talent, skills, and experience of senior leaders who are retired or transitioning out of the workforce. Participants will learn about the most pressing needs in the county and discover opportunities where they can to apply their experience. In this way, our community’s star talent continues to engage in high-impact civic leadership.

Who is eligible to apply?

  • Retired individuals who live in Medina County
  • Anyone who possesses a sincere commitment to serve and grow as a leader
  • Must have an email address

Applications are accepted February through August. Tuition is $200. Talk with us about the application process at 330-721-7118.

Time Committment

Legacy Leaders will meet monthly for lunch from August through May to learn about local nonprofits throughout Medina County. There will also be a "day of action" where participants can pool their strengths to help a local nonprofit as a team.

In order to accomplish the program’s stated objectives, attendance and full participation of each individual selected is necessary.  Participants must be able to commit to the full class schedule below.  However, we realize that “life happens” sometimes.  Therefore, we do allow for one excused absence per class year.  More than one absence could disqualify a program participant from graduating from the program.  Orientation/Opening Retreat and Graduation are mandatory.

Further your leadership legacy by sharing your wisdom and experience!
