Leadership Novato 2020 Service Projects
By working with our community, the Novato Chamber has been able to create one of the most comprehensive Leadership Programs in the North Bay. By designing the curriculum in conjunction with major "players" in our community, we ensure that students gain valuable insight in to the avenues of service, or leadership that they may be interested in perusing.
Novato Fire Protection District
How safe are we from fires? Where are our trucks? What Fire Houses ALSO have EMTs? Learn this and train in your team at the regional training facility.
Novato Sanitary District
How clean do we get? Where does all the plastic go? Is our landfill at capacity? What is with the purple pipes? So after Thanksgiving, where does the gravy go?
North Marin Water District
Learn where your water comes from, the three-pronged approach to water security and all about the process of cleaning, purchasing and delivering water.
City of Novato
What is the role and responsibility of the City of Novato? How are pensions really going to affect our community? What are the barriers to getting involved with City government?
Novato Unified School District
Have schools really changed all that much since you were there? How is NUSD dealing with budget shortcomings? Where are the new facilities going and how will that affect a child's education? Why are students not pushed towards skill jobs instead of only academia?
Ed Stark saw the unique districts in Novato as an asset for the residents because they could get involved in the community; but with little to no training, the individual decisions that each district was making were creating a mess. In a community like ours, Ed Stark Realized that getting involved was great, but a good foundation could make things run smoother. in 1990 he, with the support of the City, and several of the other districts created Leadership Novato through the Novato Chamber.
Today the Program continues this rich heritage and over the years we have added components of civil service, economics and other education pieces that can help develop strong leaders. Students today get to run and oversee service projects that actually leave a lasting mark on the face of our community.
Explore Novato. We look at schools, fire houses, trails, hospitals, commerce districts, water plants, power plants, natural plants...and meet all the interesting people along the way.
Nothing beats experience. Get hands-on leadership experience with this comprehensive program that explores the unique jobs and roles that go into running our community.
