Vision 2040 Leadership has been awarded a $5000 grant from the Southwest Initiative Foundation to address sustainability planning for this program. The grant will be used to fund activities for the Design Team to develop an ongoing funding plan and structure for the program to support education for current and past participants as well as coordination of the program. Work on the development and implementation of this plan will occur during fiscal year 2017.
Vision 2040 Leadership is a 9 month leadership program for individuals who live and work in the Willmar Lakes Area which is considered to be all of Kandiyohi County.
I made connections with community members and found many common visions. I have begun to get more active in the community due to the connections.
I am excited to make a difference and feel confident to do so!
“I'm proud to volunteer and support the efforts of Vision 2040 because creating a healthy community takes a collabortive effort. No one person or entity can create a community where people want to live and work and play, but working together we can create it. Vision 2040 started with an inclusive effort to bring together people from across our region to articulate their vision of the future of our region's communities. The goals that emerged from that vision offer everyone the opportunity to share in the collaborative work necessary to create a healthy and vibrant region--and that's a good thing for all of us.”
