Leadership Program

Redwood City • Belmont • Menlo Park • San Carlos


Developing Leaders for the Future of our Community

Our ten-month program provides participants the opportunity for presentations and discussions with experts and key decision-makers.

In dynamic sessions held one Friday a month, September through June, participants learn about timely and relevant issues of vital concern to their city; and learn how they can effectively shape the future of their community, their organization, or their business. The focus of each session is not on specific political viewpoints; rather, a number of alternative views are presented from experts in the given areas. We invite those individuals seeking to challenge themselves by becoming more educated and involved in their community.

  • Participants will gain a broader understanding of their community and how it functions as they are introduced to influential community leaders.
  • Participants will acquire valuable information and access to resources, which will aid them in their work and civic engagement.
  • Participants will have the opportunity to create a positive presence and identify themselves, their business or organization as partners to the community.
