Leadership Fellows

Leadership Fellows Boulder County is a joint leadership development and networking program of the Community Foundation and the Boulder Chamber.

The program provides 25-30 diverse, emerging, and transformational leaders from across all sectors, industries, and county geography with a broad understanding of the topics, challenges, and solutions that are vital to the success of our communities.

Applications for the 23-24 class are closed. This will be the 15th Fellows cohort, the 11th year of a merged program combining the strengths of the Community Foundation Boulder County’s and Boulder Chamber’s long-standing commitments and experience in local leadership and building an inclusive community. Leadership Fellows Boulder County will begin September 19, 2023.

Topics include equity, inclusive leadership, community health and wellbeing, environment, workforce/economics, housing, arts, local government, and others. The program provides the guidance and tools to build professional networks and participate in local leadership roles.

Tuition: $1,500

We are committed to inclusivity and diversity. Some financial assistance is available. Contact us for more information.

Graduates of the program are expected to take on a local leadership role (i.e., join a nonprofit or government board/commission, work on a candidate or initiative campaign, join a neighborhood or school association, or run for office) within six months of completing the program.
