Leadership Cumberland Class of 2023

Leadership Cumberland began as Leadership Carlisle in the fall of 1989 after a year of research and planning by the Carlisle Area Chamber of Commerce. The name change in 2004 and physical move of the office to the west shore in 2009 reflects a commitment to a more inclusive county-wide program, yet the mission has not wavered–to develop a program that would serve the county by developing individuals to become effective leaders in the workplace and community.

Since that time over 550 individuals have graduated from Leadership Cumberland’s Fellow program. Our Fellows, as participants are called, represent a diverse group of emerging leaders from banking, the law, healthcare, government, production, education, and nonprofits. While differing in age, background, and profession they share one common trait—the motivation and desire to take on greater responsibilities in the community and at work. We support that desire by providing them with the skill sets, information, and networking needed to make that happen.

The Junior Leadership Cumberland (JLC) Program was added in the Spring of 2020. The program is designed to familiarize high school students in their Junior year with the various elements that form a strong and dynamic community and to help students develop leadership skills. The curriculum acquaints participants with community needs, opportunities, challenges, and resources. It gives them the opportunity to develop leadership, communication, and team-building skills. It also provides them with the opportunity to interact with students from other schools, community leaders, and decision-makers.

As of the Summer of 2022, Leadership Cumberland is now facilitated in partnership with the Carlisle Area and the West Shore Chambers of Commerce.
