Twenty-five local residents have completed a 10-month program focused on leadership and volunteer opportunities in the Corvallis area. Their introduction to the people and places that impact our community was designed to encourage participation on boards of nonprofits, local government committees, volunteer task forces and other areas where citizen involvement can make a difference.
