The Leadership Tomorrow Class conducts an annual project as part of the nine-month curriculum. All Class members are required to participate in the planning and execution of the project. The goal of the LT class project is to select one project that all members can participate in and helps the community or an organization in the community.
The group is encouraged to think about a leadership project that makes a difference in the community in terms of a leadership, not volunteer, project. The process of completing this project is just as essential as the outcome of the project.
