Experiences shape our lives.
As do influential people we meet along the way.
Graduates say there is no experience quite like GBC's LEADERship Program. Something happens inside.
And something powerful happens outside, through new connections you likely never thought possible.
Those who open themselves up to new challenges - physical, mental, emotional - are prepared to confront opportunity in a whole new way. When we expose ourselves, our vulnerabilities, our assumptions, and sometimes even our fears, we allow ourselves to grow. And when we are guided through a remarkable varied set of activities and conversations, the opportunity for a personal, year-long, transformative experience exponentially increases.
Each LEADERship year is filled with seminars, discussions, tours of local programs, weekend retreats, and meetings with some of the region's most influential leaders. Program participants come to know their community, themselves, and each other - in many ways understanding the city from a completely new perspective.
While graduates are personally enriched by the program, the community benefits as well. Leadership skills, knowledge of the community, personal contacts, and deep friendships pay dividends long after the formal program ends.
Fifty-four hand selected, highly diverse classmates.
Over 1,200 alumni to reach out to after you complete the program.
There is only one way to be a part of this. Experience it yourself.
