Designed to connect citizens of Mount Pleasant to the community in deep and meaningful ways, the program aims to encourage civic engagement through hands-on education, real world interactions, and the opportunity to leave a lasting mark on the city by completing a project or meeting a demonstrated need by the end of the six month program.

Topics to be explored will include: diversity, healthcare, social services, local government, economic development and education. The program will also include a two day trip to Austin with the  Northeast Texas Regional Alliance at which participants will be able to meet and interact with state legislators to discuss issues of great importance to our city and region. 

Graduates of this dynamic program will have an understanding of the interconnectedness of the topics covered and the need for fully engaged and empowered citizens who will work together to insure a prosperous and dynamic future for Mount Pleasant.
