Team Projects

One of the valuable elements of the Leadership Springfield program is the community-based project that the participants undertake during the course of the September through mid-December program.  Assigned to project teams, participants are challenged to exercise creativity and problem-solving skills by working on projects for the benefit of area not-for-profit organizations.
