Leadership Greensboro- Activities List

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. As activities are completed, they should be reported here.

Please note that activities completed as a part of a Program Day do not count toward your activity total.

Tips/Suggestions:
  • Complete the activities before the Program Day focused on that theme
  • Consider scheduling and sharing activities with your classmates
  • Each month, the Program Chairs will highlight a group activity focused on the Program Day for that month in which everyone is encouraged to participate, to get to know your fellow class members
  • Friends and family members are welcome to come with you as you complete activities
  • We’ll share a spreadsheet of combined logged activities each month
  • Most importantly, remember to have fun while getting to know more about the Greensboro community!
