“Leadership Kitsap’s providing me an opportunity to grow in a learning environment with other motivated people.  The training has helped me to understand my own strengths and how they work with those of my teammates.  Most of all I’ve enjoyed meeting with community leaders on our challenge days.”

Robin Henderson LK15

“I am a fortunate recipient of a 2015 Leadership Kitsap Scholarship and so grateful to be. The experience that I have been afforded so far this year has been inspiring, enlightening, and motivating. I have learned so much about Kitsap County and being able to serve my community through my team’s service project is exhilarating. Thanks to all who donate to this excellent program!”

“Leadership Kitsap has been our ‘go-to’ resource for developing our future library leaders. Nothing I have seen gives them a better understanding of Kitsap County and its unique public policy issues.
