Cohort Projects

Each LEAD Atlanta member will be assigned to a cohort group, and each cohort will receive a community project to complete before the Closing Program. Cohort assignments and project details will be provided at the Opening Retreat. Active participation in cohort projects is required. These projects are designed to require approximately 20-30 hours of time from September-April.


Each LEAD Atlanta member will have the opportunity to be paired with two mentors, one who is a Leadership Atlanta graduate and one who is a LEAD Atlanta graduate.

Social Activities

Throughout the LEAD Atlanta program year, you will be encouraged to participate in social activities planned by LEAD Atlanta alumni or by fellow class members. Examples include happy hours, cultural events, "random dinners" in each other's homes, etc.


Applications for the LEAD Atlanta Class of 2020 are closed. Please check back later for updates on the Class of 2021.
