Adult Leadership Pasco Program

Sessions and tours are held at various locations throughout Pasco County and surrounding counties. Each session is planned and coordinated by a team of Leadership Pasco alumni members. All activities of Leadership Pasco and the Leadership Pasco Alumni Organization are conducted by volunteer members.

Since 1990 we have worked to develop and inform leaders throughout East, Central and West Pasco. Leadership Pasco’s mission has been and continues to be to one where we identify and recruit current or potential leaders of Pasco County Florida.

Our successful record for offering an issues-oriented team learning environment for those leaders and a commitment to offer a program that encourages a free exchange of ideas has built enthusiasm for participating in our program.

With over 600 satisfied graduates, we believe that we have successfully constructed a framework for the development and interaction of those leaders.
