Mississippi Power assists communities in building leadership and social capacity to support planned development and an improved quality of life. We provide professional consultation, facilitation, and training services to nonprofit and government groups in the areas of strategic planning, interpersonal skills, and non-profit board effectiveness.

We develop and implement community outreach programs, including social and community awareness initiatives. We work with local community and civic organizations to create programs that further their mission, strengthening social capacity in the communities we serve. We also work to develop strong partnerships which allow us to better understand the needs of our customers and our communities.

Building leadership capacity is essential to building sustainable, growing communities. We partner with multiple leadership development programs throughout southeast Mississippi, providing leadership skills training to more than 200 current and emerging leaders each year, creating a steady stream of informed and engaged citizens in our communities.
