The Vision Program was beneficial to me because it was all about the people!!! Meeting folks (both classmates and speakers) from the full spectrum of governmental agencies, social services, and the private sector was, and has continued to be, an incredible asset that is beneficial long past the program term. The Program provides direct access to many community leaders, and insight to the inner workings of organizations and governmental programs that most individuals cannot easily achieve.
I was a member of the 2003-2004 class, and still have direct ties to many of the participants. That is one more reason that St. Charles County always feels more like home - you always have a “connector” to someone.

Vision helped me develop my leadership skills eventually resulting in a promotion within my organization. After graduation from Vision, I continued to serve Vision on their Board of Directors for the past three years. I have met many other leaders in my Community through Vision which offers priceless networking opportunities. I cannot say enough about the Vision program and I am very grateful to my employer for offering this great opportunity to me.

The Vision Program was beneficial to me because it really helped me to get to know people throughout the St. Charles community. I loved all of the “field trips” to the locations throughout our county and I learned so much. We live in such a great community and it was an honor to learn new things about it at every session. The bonding and fun with my fellow classmates was a great experience and one where I feel a major connection to them. I was a member of the Vision Class of 2007.

The Vision program was beneficial to me because… I became much more aware of the inner workings of our local and state governments and the nonprofits that help our communities.

The Vision program was beneficial to me because it opened my eyes to the wide array of services available in this county as well as provided me with an opportunity to become part of a new network. The relationships I've formed with former class members, board members and other alumni are invaluable to me on both a business level and a personal level. I highly recommend this program for anyone wanting to learn more about St. Charles County and develop new relationships along the way.
