Leadership Manitowoc County builds strong leaders, relationships
Leadership Manitowoc County is a great program designed to build strong leaders and strong relationships within our community. This well-designed program brings together potential leaders from various entities to learn about our community's history, economy, businesses and resources. It also encourages and motivates participants to network with peers and improve leadership skills. 
Leadership Manitowoc County started as a program for adult leaders within our community. Every year, employers recommend employees to participate in this nine-month program, which ends with a graduation and dinner.

Manitowoc County Historical Society is a very important part of preserving Manitowoc County history.

Favorite thing about our area:
The programs offered at the Manitowoc County Historical Society create lasting memories for both the volunteers and visitors. Each year, over 3,000 school-age youth join us in experiencing the stories of our past. One of our experiences takes our students back in time to learn about the life of a Civil War Soldier. Last year, following this day long Civil War experience, a group of students came up to our volunteer reenactor with hugs and high-fives to show their appreciation for a day full of adventure, discovery, and a battle reenactment. The hard work of our volunteer guided an experience the students will not forget.
