Delta Force, a leadership training program in Delta County, was established in 2002 by the Delta County Chamber of Commerce, Delta County Economic Development Alliance, Michigan Works! The Job Force Board, Bay College, New Page Corporation and the Daily Press .
The objective of Delta Force is to identify participants with potential for community leadership; acquaint these leaders with community issues, resources and opportunities; increase the leadership skills of program participants; provide participants with opportunities to network and exchange ideas with each other and community leaders; assist participants in finding volunteer roles in the community; and encourage graduates to continue their involvement by participating in community service programs.
Delta Force is a series of ten full-day sessions and two evening events covering such areas as education, social needs, personal skills, and key segments of our community.
Each day is designed to be highly interactive and thought provoking. A typical day involves a combination of group discussions, field trips and presentations by respected local leaders. The session dates are typically scheduled for the last Thursday of each month.
Applications for the Delta Force class of 2013 will be accepted through December 31st, 2012. For more information please call the Delta County Chamber of Commerce, 786-2192.
