Visioneering City to City Trip

Louisville, KY

In an effort to reach out to young community leaders, Visioneering Wichita is launching the Emerging Leaders Program for individuals between the ages of 25 and 39 years old. The Emerging Leaders Program is a scholarship opportunity for young professionals to be involved in Visioneering Wichita’s annual City to City Visits. The goal this year is to encourage participation of more young professionals in the City to City visit to Louisville, Kentucky October 10 -13.

Visioneering Wichita is aware that many young leaders are establishing themselves economically and may not be able to support the travel cost, therefore a scholarship program is being instituted. Two full or partial scholarships are available this year. Applicants are required to fill out a scholarship application form. Forms are available online and the application deadline is September 1. Awards will be announced September 3.

“Visioneering Wichita has always had a high priority of connecting with our young citizens through many of its initiatives. We believe this program is another way to increase diversity, as well as provide a unique opportunity for winners to network with other community leaders,” says Jon Rolph, volunteer chair of the Visioneering Wichita Steering Committee.

Visioneering Wichita is the comprehensive long-range planning initiative for south-central Kansas. Partners include the Wichita Metro Chamber of Commerce, City of Wichita, and Sedgwick County, as well as hundreds of organizations, businesses and individuals who participate in 15 strategic alliances designed to improve the regional economy and quality of life.
