Valley Leadership Accelerate will give you the lay of the land on the hot issues facing Arizona and connect you with others already working on solutions. A shorter-term program, we’ll get you up-to-speed with short, burst-style programming, interaction with the people making a difference and the opportunities to get involved. Accelerate helps you find your purpose and mobilizes you to have impact on the community. This program is for proven leaders ready to take their impact to the next level.
This program is for individuals who are beginning their community work, still exploring their leadership style and are ready to build the networks they’ll need to excel and thrive as a community leader.
The cost for the 2018 program is $850 per participant. Financial assistance is available.
We will be hosting two recruitment events for applicants that want more information about the program and process. The logistics for these events are below. Click on the event you want to attend and register through that form.
