PLAN 2018: Passion Projects

The PLAN 2018 class was charged with the development and implementation of a community “passion” project in their home counties.

The pages of this booklet only demonstrate a fraction of the commitment these 16 leaders put into cultivating these projects in their home county, and the projects are just one of many assignments designed to challenge participants to move past their comfort zones and put their leadership skills to work.
