Rural Economic and Leadership Development Program

Building Leaders

The Rural Economic and Leadership (REAL) Development Program is a comprehensive series designed for rural South Dakotans who want to serve in a leadership role.

Through innovative speakers and hands-on activities, participants develop skills that can be directly applied to their lives. They will be prepared to serve on a local co-op board of directors, county or city commissions, the state Legislature or a wide range of service clubs or community organizations. Participants gain valuable life skills that will help them in their professional and personal lives.

Areas of participant development include:

  • Personal motivation
  • Leadership strategy
  • Goal achievement
  • Community growth
