Now Accepting Applications for TALL Class 13 – Deadline is Dec. 1, 2023
Are you interested in becoming actively engaged in improving your community? Apply to be a Tallahassee Active LifeLong Leader, a community leadership program developed in partnership with Leadership Tallahassee for those aged 50 and above who are passionate about our community and who wish to explore civic engagement opportunities covering a wide range of current topics with local leaders. The goal of this unique program is personal growth and effecting a positive change in our community.
As a TALL participant, you will experience “snapshots” of the cultural, political, safety, legal and justice, educational, and health and human services climate of our community through site visits with community leaders and interactive activities.
“I learned how to become a citizen instead of just a taxpayer,” said Joan Tolliver, a TALL Class 8 grad. “Tallahassee may be a community you just moved to or a community you have always lived in. With TALL you learn to look at things from a different point of view. The people you meet in this program become an important part of your life. It helped me grow and create a sense of pride for Tallahassee.”
TALL Class 11 grad Shauna Smith said, “I’m from Tallahassee, and yet I learned and did so much. I am at the Tallahassee Senior Center almost every day. I got connected and got to know people better.”
Apply today. Be inspired and better equipped to enhance positive change and growth in the community while continuing to enhance your own life and develop new friendships.
