This year's Leadership Cape participants gather for a photo after presenting their team projects at First Friday Coffee.

As the 30th year of Leadership Cape draws to a close, per tradition, Chamber members were presented an array of community improvement projects developed by Leadership Cape participants at First Friday Coffee. While several projects throughout the years have come to fruition, the goal of the projects is to improve leadership skills by intentionally exposing participants to the realities of working with different personality types.

From a celebration of cultural diversity to the implementation of additional transportation options, the projects were innovative, thoughtful and quite impressive. Below is a list of the projects with a brief synopsis and links to the full presentations — take a look!
