Leadership Seminole Education Program

Since 1995, Leadership Seminole has succeeded in educating community stakeholders, resulting in current and potential leadership development and community improvement.In doing so, we believe community leaders, from all perspectives, will come together in a spirit of equality, trust and collaboration to identify the needs and constructively engage the many divergent voices to action to improve the quality of life in the Seminole County. We prepare and inspire leaders to address the challenges facing Seminole County and foster a higher level of interaction among leaders. Offering one class each year (54 person limit), Leadership Seminole begins with a two-day team building orientation in August then conducts monthly one-day interactive sessions focusing on real time issues within the following areas: government, healthcare, education, arts, culture, infrastructure, public safety, human services, economic development, environmental preservation, simulated society (SIMSOC), and law and justice ending in May.

Population(s) Served

On the first day of Leadership Seminole, each class is asked this question- what will your legacy be? Brought together from all areas of business and government, possessing diverse skills, experiences and passions, classes must harness their talents and leave behind a Legacy of Leadership. They carry with them a sense of purpose and the knowledge that amazing things come from the collaboration of leaders. Their legacy grows with each class that commits to improve our community. Each class chooses a local non-profit and work to meet the organizations needs, through repairs, renovations, or new facilities. Since 2003 Leadership Seminole classes have raised and invested more than $900,000 and contributed 13,593 volunteer hours to non-profit organizations in Seminole County. Each class establishes a fundraising goal and solicits cash and in-kind contributions. The beneficiaries include: Rescue Outreach Mission of Sanford, Boys Town Central Florida, Central Florida Zoo, Intervention Services, Elizabeth House, Foundation for Seminole County Public Schools, Kids House of Seminole, Meals on Wheels, Harvest Time International, The Sharing Center, and Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Florida..

The annual High School Video Contest Awards incorporates the most critical issues facing high school students. Based on two separate surveys (2009, 2010) of Seminole County high school students, the issues include drug and alcohol abuse, bullying, body image, conflict resolution, and depression.

All nine Seminole County public high schools have the opportunity participate in the contest. The nine competing videos are shown with the student teams and faculty advisers in attendance at the annual High School Character Video Awards in April. The top three winners are announced. Each member of the winning team, their faculty adviser and their school receive recognition and a trophy. The videos are shown throughout the Seminole County public school system. The end result is students messaging to students.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our aim is to be the leading community resource developing, inspiring, and engaging community leaders to improve the quality of life in the Seminole County region.

We do this by providing an 10-month educational program that brings present and future community leaders together for the sharing of knowledge that will inspire them to step forward and make a difference in our community.

Leadership Seminole is a ten month program beginning each August with a two-day orientation followed by monthly one-day sessions focusing on timely issues within the following areas: government, arts, culture, infrastructure, public safety, human services, healthcare, education, economic development, environmental preservation, simulated society (SIMSOC), and concluding in May with law and justice and a sold out graduation ceremony with 400 people in attendance.

Participation is highly interactive and experiential, with opportunities for networking and team building throughout. The sessions are an opportunity for participants to develop lifelong relationships with their classmates, community leaders serving as facilitators and subject experts. Class members build vast background knowledge on important issues that impact them on a daily basis for the betterment of themselves, their company and their community.

Leadership Seminole classes have raised and invested $1,200,000 and contributed 18,000 volunteer hours to non-profit organizations.
