No other organization offers better holistic exposure to Kosciusko County businesses and organizations.
Once your application is reviewed and you’re accepted as a cadet, your sponsor (typically your employer) submits payment for the KLA program. Individuals and those who are self-employed are also welcome to apply and pay for their participation themselves.
The annual program begins in August with a county-wide bus tour to learn about the history of KLA and review the plan for classes. The tour throughout Kosciusko County also includes lunch at a landmark location.
Every KLA session throughout the year is held at a different Kosciusko County location and features a different topic. Classes typically are held every other Tuesday morning from August – March and last 2 hours.
Cadets will form groups and work on a white paper project throughout the year.
In April, Project Proud is held and each group will present their projects and white papers. A panel of judges then determines the Northenor Award winner, who then wins funding for their project.
At the end of April, a graduation banquet is held with a guest speaker where all cadets receive a framed diploma.
