What is your favorite thing about Blount County? The natural beauty, the growing industry, the dedicated public servants, or the incredible education and healthcare systems available? Discover Blount was launched in 2017 to share all these things with new and lifelong Blount County residents.
In collaboration with community partners, Discover Blount is an introduction to Blount County showcasing our area. The program will introduce participants to resources in our county and identify opportunities to become more involved. The Discover Blount program will consist of six, 5 hour class days with one social and one service opportunity.
Discover Blount is open to anyone who works or lives in Blount County. Forty participants will be accepted on a first come-first serve basis. While anyone is welcome to participate, the program is aimed at emerging leaders, those new to Blount County, and anyone wanting to become more involved in the community. Applications for the Fall 2017 Class will be available online beginning August 16th and the Spring 2018 applications will be available November 1st.
