What is Leadership South KC (LSKC)?

LSKC is an annual educational program that provides a forum for current and emerging leaders to learn about issues and opportunities facing South Kansas City and the greater Kansas City area.

Topics pertaining to government, education, public safety, health care, transportation, technology, community service, entrepreneurship, small business, and more, are covered.

How much time is required?

LSKC is a seven-month commitment, beginning in November and ending in June. Participants are asked to dedicate two days each month to the program. On-site, “behind the scenes” tours are scheduled at various Kansas City locations.

Along the way, you will collaborate and work as a team with fellow LSKC participants, and meet with current Kansas City leaders and business owners who could eventually become trusted contacts or mentors for your business.

“The Leadership Kansas City class is something that I would recommend to anyone who’s interested in learning more about Kansas City and what goes on behind the scenes. I was able to gain a better understanding of how the city operates and learn more about some of the businesses that make KC what it is. The whole experience was well planned, organized, and FUN!”

Maggie Garcia, MCC-Longview

The LSKC Program was a great opportunity and fun experience for me to learn about the Kansas City metro area, as well as being a part of a very diverse group. I thought I knew quite a bit about what KC has to offer since I was born and raised here, but I quickly found out there is so much more!
