Shepperd EDGE

What is the Shepperd Edge?

Brownsville 060Leaders need training, and the Shepperd Edge is designed to provide today’s college and high school students with the tools needed for effective leadership tomorrow through an interactive training program. We also train organizations, leadership teams, and others by request.

IMG_0010Each program is a full day of training designed to include topics like leadership, ethics, and public service. Students explore these ideas through educational and practical sessions, leaving with skills, knowledge, and new relationships.

IMG_0439The John Ben Shepperd Public Leadership Institute is funded by the State of Texas and private contributions to provide leadership training for young Texans. This allows our staff to offer this training at minimal cost to you: we cover all materials and travel; you provide the students, the facility, and lunch.

For more information, please contact the John Ben Shepperd Public Leadership Institute at (432) 552-2850 or finley_c@utpb.edu. To market a potential Shepperd Edge program, download our JBS Shepperd Edge Flyer!
