Leadership Gainesville is a year-long community leadership program  designed to identify, educate and develop leadership skills. Each year approximately 40 individuals are selected to participate in the program following completion of a competitive application process.

Leadership Gainesville’s principal goal is to build a resource of community leadership on a planned, continuing basis. Leadership Gainesville has four specific objectives:

• Identify community leaders

• Expand the leadership potential of participants by increasing their knowledge of the Gainesville/Alachua County area

• Improve communications between present and future leaders

• Provide a channel for those not presently in leadership roles to gain access to positions of community leadership in an informed and responsible manner

Each session examines key themes and issues affecting our community.

The Leadership Gainesville (LG) program provides future leaders the opportunity to develop leadership skills by networking with individuals in the community that represent business, law, religion, civic groups, the arts, minority organizations, education, health care, government, human services and volunteer organizations.
