About Our Program
Do you want a career where you can make a difference in your community? Do you want to play a role in the exciting and innovative changes taking place in Metro Detroit? Do you want to learn the skills you need to be a leader – an agent of change – in your neighborhood? Do you want to meet the movers and shakers who are leading community changes?
At HFC, you can follow two pathways to gaining the skills and knowledge to be an agent of change. We offer an Associate Degree in Community Leadership with the opportunity to transfer all the credits to several four-year colleges and universities in the metro area. We also offer a Certificate in Community Leadership that can be a stand-alone credential or can be part of another associate degree program here at the College.
Civil society needs leadership to solve everyday problems. These problems can’t be solved by CEOs or elected officials alone. Community leadership is leading citizens to solve the problems in their own community. As renowned anthropologist Margaret Mead once said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
As a part of the Community Leadership program, you will join a national network of students, community colleges, and community organizations working toward the same goal: Preparing the next generation of community leaders for careers dedicated to improving the quality of life in rapidly changing communities. Additionally, these programs will prepare you for a leadership career in non-profit agencies, community organizing, local government, community health, the green economy, and even running for public office.
