Strong leaders shape healthy communities.
Our greatest resource is our people. Illinois communities need leaders who provide clear direction, inspire creative problem solving, and create safe environments to work, learn, and grow. We know this responsibility weighs heavily on community leaders, so let us share the load. Illinois Extension is helping leaders and communities tackle complicated challenges in creating resilient communities.
