DC Ranch Leadership Academy Application 2021

In 2020, DC Ranch launched a leadership program for residents interested in learning more about the community’s governance and operations. Twenty residents completed and graduated from Class I.

Applications are now open for Class II. The educational series will involve hands-on activities to expose participants to the types of situations they might encounter as a community leadership volunteer.

The sessions will be engaging and provide a solid foundation for those wanting to contribute as a member of a committee, focus group, outreach ambassador, Neighborhood Voting Member or serve on a Board of Directors. It also allows residents to get to know other residents and staff in a collaborative, learning format and establish positive, long-term working relationships.

Each session will include classroom-style instruction and an interactive segment to problem-solve, provide feedback and work as a team. Examples of activities include touring the community, getting a behind-the-scenes look at the Security Command Center, walking with a Community Standards specialist to canvass a neighborhood, attending a community event and inspecting a portion of the paths and trails.

Leadership development graduates will be acknowledged in our community publications, earn special privileges and be honored at a graduation celebration.

Applications for Class II are due by July 18, 2021.
