Leadership Greensboro- Activities List

To successfully complete Leadership Greensboro, class members must participate in several activities outside of the regularly scheduled Program Days. The activities listed below are categorized by Program Day themes. Class members must complete at least one activity for each category, and a minimum of eight (8) activities total.
