Youth Leadership Program, Neighborhood Leadership Program and Latino Leadership Program Have Closed

Wilder has made the incredibly difficult decision to end the Youth Leadership Initiative, the Neighborhood Leadership Program and the Latino Leadership Program. We know the absence of these programs will be felt throughout the community.

We will make every effort to work with other organizations who may be able to take up these important leadership programs.
