This new program joins more than 50 professional leadership programs throughout the state whose goals include building and improving leadership skills within local communities. The nine month program exposed Kaitlyn to key industries in our economy such as agriculture, healthcare, manufacturing, and natural gas. Kaitlyn received a behind the scenes look at area facilities including Tyler Hospital, United Methodist Homes – Tunkhannock, a natural gas drill site, compressor stations, the Wyoming County Courthouse and much more.
Over the course of the class, Kaitlyn and her team members were also tasked with completing a community service project at the Tunkhannock Public Library. The project, “Take the Library Outside,” will allow the library to utilize a portion of their back yard for special events and will allow people of all ages to enjoy.
This was a great opportunity for Kaitlyn and KCR, please make sure you congratulate her. Programs like this helps us to build relationships with local businesses and supports our community outreach to create more possibilities for our individuals with intellectual disabilities and autism.
