2000, Wyandotte County Kansas
From its origins in 1985, the purpose of
Leadership 2000 has been to develop the leadership
potential of men and women in Wyandotte County,
Kansas. Its flagship program, Leadership 2000, was
created to identify, motivate and develop 2,000 new
and emerging community leaders to help shape our
community's future. Leadership 2000 classes are made
up of individuals with diverse backgrounds who have
demonstrated an interest in and a commitment to civic
leadership. Through this program participants become
aware of social and economic changes and the impact of
such changes upon the local economy.
Establishment of Leadership 2000 was a response to the
desire for more people to engage in the process of
addressing important community issues rather than
depending upon the same decision makers to do so.
However, Leadership 2000 participants do not wait
until after graduation to engage in this process. Each
class participates in a project to benefit the
Over 650 individuals have participated in Leadership
2000 since 1986. In surveys conduced in 1992, 1997 and
2004, graduates have averaged one to two community
involvements prior to their participation in
Leadership 2000. After completing the program, they
averaged five community involvements and one 'big'
board position. Also, ninety percent of Leadership
2000 graduates volunteer their time in the community.
The experiences provided by this special program have
an impact not only on the participants, but also on
their organizations and their communities.
Participants are better informed, involved and more
skilled in leadership as a result of their
participation in Leadership 2000.
