Leadership Kentucky Now Accepting Elevate 2020 Applications

FRANKFORT, Ky. (October 23, 2019). –Leadership Kentucky, one of the oldest and most prestigious statewide leadership development programs in the United States, is now accepting applications for the Elevate Kentucky Class of 2020. Elevate Kentucky is a three-session program that runs from April-June.

The Elevate Kentucky program offers young professionals (average age 25-35) in-depth personal and professional development while fostering a better understanding of the strengths and challenges facing the Commonwealth. Elevate participants return to their companies with increased skills, knowledge, perspective, and a new statewide professional network. Millennial leaders are better prepared to be catalysts in their companies and communities to Elevate Kentucky.

During each session, class members hear from thought-provoking Kentucky leaders, learn about issues and opportunities facing our state, and self-assess and gain insights about their personal leadership abilities.  In addition, participants will attend panel discussions, participate in experiential learning opportunities and gain increased regional and statewide perspectives while visiting different regions in Kentucky. Sessions will be held in Owensboro, Louisville, and Eastern Kentucky.

Applications for the Class of 2020 will be available online until November 30, 2019 at
