YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – The deadline to apply for the Leadership Mahoning Valley class of 2015-2016 has been extended to Aug. 1, the Youngstown-Warren Regional Chamber announced Tuesday.

This is the second time that the deadline, initially May 1, has been extended.

The program offers participants with an overview of the Mahoning Valley, an increased understanding of community issues and the potential to develop effective relationships with other civic leaders, chamber officials say.

The tuition of $2,000 covers all expenses, which include meals, admission fees and supplies.

Participants complete a nine-month program that includes day-long sessions — one per month — that focus on topics such as education, health, human services, heritage, local government, justice, labor, business, poverty and diversity. A graduation dinner is held at the conclusion next spring.

A selection committee composed of Leadership Mahoning Valley members reviews all applications.

Candidates may request applications directly or be nominated by their employer or a program graduate.

Those chosen will be billed for tuition. Applications may be requested by calling 330 744 2131, Ext. 41.
