Community

Thinking about becoming a local leader? There’s a class for that

The Los Altos Community Foundation sponsors the Leadership Education ADvancement Program (LEAD), which provides an in-depth introduction to Los Altos and Los Altos Hills.

The foundation developed the course in 1996 to provide information about the community and to encourage new and enhanced personal involvement.

The 2013 course opens with a half-day workshop Jan. 26, followed by sessions scheduled twice a month – 7-9 p.m. Wednesdays, February through June.

Since its inception, approximately 300 participants have graduated from the course, nicknamed “Los Altos 101.” Many have used the experience to become elected officials, nonprofit board members or more committed volunteers.

LEAD facilitates dialogue between community leaders and participants in a setting designed to foster camaraderie, allow time for everyone to be involved and ask questions and provide a forum where candid discussions about objectives and challenges can occur.

Each session has a focused agenda. Topics include local government, commerce, education, the Los Altos Library, Foothill College, health care, the arts and community service organizations.

Cost is $125.
