The 1828 Leadership Project, presented by Citizens Energy Group, is a civic leadership tract for people between the ages of 18 and 28. Carefully curated and structured to foster intentional relationships with a cross sector of Indianapolis’ thought leaders and decision makers, 1828 jump-starts participants’ civic impact by connecting them with the resources and people who can help them succeed.
We believe these leaders have ideas ready to implement now, not in ten years.
Leadership takes all forms, and Indy requires all types of leaders. The 1828 Leadership Project convenes both traditional and non-traditional leaders in an effort to diversify Indianapolis’ unique civic ecosystem. Relationships forged across these sectors – from nonprofit leaders and entrepreneurs to artists and educators – result in a more inclusive vision for the city’s future (and a more representative group of doers and change-makers on the front lines).
Fundamental to the philosophy of 1828 is that these leaders are ready to lead and have ideas ready to implement now. Through 1828, IndyHub will seek to assist in the development of these projects and passions by connecting these individuals with resources and people who can help them fully realize their big ideas.
