Senior Leadership Montgomery


About the Program

Senior Leadership Montgomery (SLM) is a seven month, innovative, groundbreaking program for mature adults with diverse backgrounds. Senior Leadership Montgomery will educate you, inspire you and motivate you. Nowhere else can you learn as much about Montgomery County as quickly or as thoroughly. You’ll be surrounded by participants who are just like you--and also totally unlike you. Program days are very well organized and wide open to your individual interests and questions. Best of all, Senior Leadership Montgomery will lead you to new friendships and volunteer opportunities in the County where you live and/or work. SLM sticks to your ribs. It’s engrossing, it’s fun and it’s full of purpose.
