Boulder County Leadership Fellows Program, 2012-2013
Applications due August 3, 2012!
The Community Foundation invites applications for its third Boulder County Leadership Fellows class. The 2012-2013 class of Fellows will meet monthly for 11 months to build networks of trust between communities and across sectors to meet Boulder County’s changing needs. Fellows are provided a resource for building networks and relationships; a forum to engage in thoughtful dialogue about emerging, multicultural, and transformational leadership; the chance to learn about the wide range of needs and assets in our community; and the opportunity to share their own experience and interact with established community leaders.
This year’s class of 20 will be made up of a diverse group of emerging leaders from a cross section of business, government, nonprofit, education, environmental, arts, neighborhood or community organizations. This will be an invaluable experience supporting and encouraging transformational leaders to address issues across communities and sectors. This is not a leadership skills building program but is meant to build networks to support Fellows’ personal and professional progress toward leadership development and to build a strong cohort of diverse leaders from across sectors. The ideal applicant will be a graduate of an existing leadership development program and/or hold a formal or informal leadership position in their personal or professional life.
Applications are due August 3 and a $100 participant fee will be due by the first meeting. The charge is necessary to offset a portion of our costs and to be able to continue to provide this opportunity. A limited number of partial scholarships are available and the Foundation expects that about ¼ of its participants will be scholarship recipients.
