"Citizenship is the chance to make a difference to the place where you belong."
Coffee County Leadership
Coffee County Leadership is a program supported by a partnership between the Tullahoma Area Chamber of Commerce and the Manchester Area Chamber of Commerce.
The highly structured ten-month program presents a wide range of opinions and perspectives through lectures, panel presentations, tours, and group activities. A primary goal of these activities is to train persons for leadership and involvement in public affairs and to establish channels of communication among community leaders.
The curriculum provides for the development of basic, as well as in-depth, knowledge of the local educational system, economic and community development, city, and county government, law enforcement, the judicial process, human services, public infrastructure, and quality of life. Team building and creative problem solving are emphasized.
It is expected that persons who complete the Coffee County Leadership program will have an increased commitment to improving the community through group and individual efforts.
