Leadership Fellows

“As a community, we need to better understand that mental health for all community members is part of what it means to be diverse and inclusive as a community. We need to see all people as people.”

Since 2009, Leadership Fellows Boulder County – a joint leadership development and networking program of the Community Foundation and the Boulder Chamber – has offered emerging leaders a broadly-based overview of Boulder County’s economic, civic and cultural drivers. 

Approximately 35 participants are selected for the 11-month program every year from across sectors. Monthly curriculum topics include, among others, Boulder County economics, Local Government 101, inclusive leadership, planning and development, critical human needs, health, education, the arts and culture, and selling your vision – as well as roundtable discussions on a range of timely issues, from affordable housing to immigration and criminal justice.

"For professional artists in our community, it’s very hard finding not only a place to live, but finding an affordable workspace, too. What I learned in Leadership Fellows is that this issue relates to almost everything in our community."
"If you think this is a traditional leadership training program – like learning skills of effective leadership – that’s not what this is. It’s so much more. It’s networking and collaboration and expanding your view across so many topics and issues that affect our community as a whole."
