Join a distinguished network of leaders dedicated to making Atlanta better.

Program Overview

The core of Leadership Atlanta's programming is our signature nine-month, executive-level series. We choose approximately 80 established leaders each year to represent a broad cross-section of metro Atlanta. Through retreats, full-day seminars, service projects, discussion groups and community tours, members explore critical community issues, examine themselves as leaders and build relationships of trust and mutual understanding.  Each class year’s programming is created and executed by a dedicated team of hundreds of Leadership Atlanta alumni volunteers, under the direction of the organization’s staff.  Each of these volunteers donates his/her time, experience, and expertise in order to create the best possible experience for class members.

Why Apply?

Leadership Atlanta is designed to propel established leaders to the next level in their service to the community.  The program provides a deep dive into the some of the most challenging issues facing our society and allows program members to gain insight into what they can do to make Greater Atlanta a better community for everyone.  Participants will grow as individuals, develop valuable contacts and interpersonal relationships and prepare themselves for future leadership opportunities.

 

Ideal applicants:

  • Hold positions of leadership in their employment or volunteer organization.
  • Display evidence of mature judgment and exceptional leadership qualities.
  • Have demonstrated a strong interest in and commitment to the community through significant voluntary leadership roles in community organizations.
  • Are most qualified to utilize their leadership skills through community service for the long-term benefit of the community.
  • Have obvious potential for growing personally and effecting change.
  • Are willing to commit the time and energy necessary to complete the program.

 

 Other considerations:

  • We are anxious to have participants from the entire metro area.
  • We seek a class that reflects the diversity of the metro area.
  • We seek representatives from business, government, non-profit and volunteer sectors.
  • There are no age restrictions or limitations.
  • Tenure in Atlanta is not necessarily a factor. Potential for impact on Atlanta now and in the future is more important. Community service in other communities is considered in the selection process.
