Are You Ready to LEARN and HAVE FUN?!


Leadership Spearfish is a developmental and educational program. This comprehensive curriculum enriches and encourages potential leaders through a nine-month course. The program is open to all people who live or work in the Spearfish area, from all segments of the community, all career levels, and is beneficial to both long term and new residents.

“I really appreciate this program. As an outsider to the town, I loved the opportunity to meet some great people and learn more about my new home. This program really brought me closer to town and helped it feel more like my new home.” -Spencer Prosen

“Leadership Spearfish was a very enriching program to be a part of. Continuing professional development is so important because we forget important tips, advice, and insight we learn over our careers. Exposing yourself to different programs builds your experience and continuously promotes your growth as an individual. In order to grow you must push yourself out of your comfort zone, so go for it!” -Angelica Tyler
