The Opening Retreat, April 25-26, 2019, for the class beginning in April 2019; and Oct. 10-11, 2019 , for the class beginning in October 2019, is an overnight, out-of-town meeting. Full attendance at the Opening Retreat is mandatory. Other program days are one full day per month from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Dates for the sessions are listed on our website at https://www.leadershiplouisville.org/ignite-louisville/#calendar
The other major component of the Ignite Louisville program is a service-learning component, the Ignite Louisville Challenge, which requires time outside of program days. Each Ignite Louisville participant will be put on a team and paired with a local nonprofit agency to work on a project. These projects allow participants to incorporate what they’ve learned from the program in a meaningful way.
Attendance is mandatory at the Opening Retreat and expected for all program days. Participation on the team project is also expected. Missing more than one program day can result in dismissal from the program. The candidate you are supervising will require your assistance to keep their calendars clear on program days and allow them some flexibility for working on their team project.
Program tuition is non-refundable.
