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.

Mentor Program

Each LEAD Atlanta member can opt-in to the Mentor Program and have the opportunity to be paired with a Leadership Atlanta graduate who will serve as his/her mentor throughout the program year. Connection beyond the program year is not required but highly encouraged!

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.
