Program Overview

No matter where you are in your leadership journey, the Leadership Foundation has a program to help you become a more effective leader at work or in the community. And, each of our programs provides the tools you need to succeed: knowledge of the issues facing our community; a new network of peers with diverse backgrounds and viewpoints; new leadership skills; and opportunities to put those skills to the test and gain valuable experiences.

Did you know we offer scholarships for all of our programs? Our Leading Colorado Scholarship Fund opens doors for remarkable civic leaders who otherwise would not be able to participate in the Leadership Foundation’s transformational programs. When we bring people with diverse viewpoints and backgrounds to the table, our community becomes more inclusive and collaborative, and we make Colorado better for all. Scholarship opportunities will be made available in the application process.
