For the Jenks area to grow and prosper, we need leaders from all backgrounds and vocations, who will handle the challenges facing our community. The goals are to challenge and motivate traditional and non-traditional leaders through information, dialogue and hands on experience so they are better prepared to strengthen and transform our community.
In place since 1986, Leadership Jenks has over 450 alumni with a large percentage still living and active in the Jenks area.
Nominations and applications for the program are now being accepted. Participants are required to live or work within the Jenks city limits.
Nine sessions will introduce participants to the workings of the Jenks City government including topics of financing, economic development, neighborhood development, and the future of Jenks. To successfully complete the program, participants must attend seven or more of the nine sessions. Classes meet the second Tuesday of every month, starting in October and ending in May. There is no charge to the participant.
