LEAD Maryland increases the numbers and capacity of leaders serving agriculture, natural resources, and rural communities.
The LEAD Maryland Foundation awards a two year fellowship to selected participants, creating classes of 20-25 emerging leaders. The LEAD Fellowship curriculum focuses on providing public issues education, skills building, leadership development, and personal growth.
Through program participation, Fellows become more equipped to solve problems, identify resources, engage and educate others, lead communities, and to shape public policy.
