WICHITA, Kan. (AP) The Kansas Leadership Center wants to work with a state organization tackling a tough civic issue.
It is offering leadership training it says is worth up to $1 million for the selected group.
Preferred candidates would be focused on what the center calls public challenges such as education, rural economic development, health care or other civic concerns.
Its Academy of Team Leadership would train up to 400 people in groups of 50 on the issue chosen for the initiative. The immersive training could run from two to four years.
The group says it came up with the $1 million figure by estimating training costs conservatively at $2,500 per person.
Interested organizations can attend a pre-application workshop Oct. 28 in Topeka or Nov. 2 in Wichita.
