Los Altos Community Foundation sponsors the Leadership Education and Advancement (LEAD) program, designed to provide an in-depth introduction for residents and business owners interested in making a difference in Los Altos and Los Altos Hills.
In the 10 interactive classes, participants learn about the municipal, nonprofit, school, hospital and business organizations that drive the local community, and meet their leaders. Since the inception of the course in 1995, many of the 450-plus LEAD graduates have run for and/or served on city councils, school boards, commissions or nonprofit boards, or assumed nonprofit leadership roles.
The 2020 LEAD class is scheduled to begin in early January and run through May. Classes are typically held 7-9 p.m. Wednesdays; the first class is a half-day Saturday workshop that includes lunch.
Cost to participate is $150. Class size is limited.
