Leadership Golden will have a meet & greet tomorrow evening from 5:30-7:30 at the Old Capitol Grill.  This is a great opportunity to learn about the program and decide whether you want to apply for the next class.

We invite you to a casual gathering to learn more about this interesting and educational experience.  This unique tuition-free program holds sessions September through May that introduce Golden citizens to city government, history, public finance, education, the arts, and more. Applications are now being accepted for the 2015-16 class.  We invite you to talk with former graduates and the Board of Directors to obtain information about participating in the Class of 2015-16.  Free appetizers + cash bar. 

Leadership Golden is designed to enhance the abilities of the participants to make a difference.  The program educates emerging volunteers and leaders to the realities, opportunities, and challenges in Golden.  The Leadership Golden program is a series of seminars spanning a nine month period.  These seminars challenge participants to increase their knowledge of the relationships between government, education, business, and the community of Golden.  Participants have the opportunity to explore options and methods of problem solving with city staff and community leaders in the fields of education, arts, recreation, public finance, city and county government, justice, community responsibility and economic development.

Leadership Golden is one of very few leadership programs in the nation which is tuition free. Graduates are encouraged to participate in the continuation and betterment of the organization as committee members, project volunteers, and/or to assist in fund raising activities to fund future sessions of the Leadership Golden program. Participants for each class of Leadership Golden are selected from the applications received by that year’s deadline. Each applicant is considered for his/her interests, sincere commitment to the greater Golden area, genuine interest in being an integral part of the Golden community, and their background.
