CORE is Leadership Tri-County's flagship program.


Each Leadership class is comprised of individuals who have been selected for their potential to expand their involvement in the development of the tri-county area. Each member has made a demonstrated commitment to leadership in both their community and place of employment. These individuals represent business and industry, government, the arts, volunteer and social organizations, education, professional groups, labor, hospitals, and utilities. 


Each participant will be equipped with the personal skills and understanding of the problems, opportunities and resources which exist within the communities of the tri-county area so they may be effective in assuming responsible and demanding roles in the solutions of a spectrum of challenges facing Southeastern Berks, Northern Chester and Western Montgomery Counties. 


These individuals will provide the foundation upon which to build future generations of leaders.

Tuition: $2,500
