KEY PROGRAMS Engage:
Since 1983, our flagship Leadership program, now referred to as Leadership Engage, has existed to unite and educate our county’s most promising leaders. Each class is made up of 45 to 50 motivated, informed and diverse professionals who are selected for their leadership and service within Palm Beach County and beyond. Participants meet for one full day each month, from September to May, and travel as a group on a bus to all parts of the county as they explore program topics such as agriculture, public safety and health care. This program offers successful professionals a powerful new network and a transformative learning experience. We bring
together the right individuals and enable them to see our community with fresh perspective and awareness.
Leadership Focus is our program for those interested in deepening their knowledge about Palm Beach County, but who just don’t have the time or experience to participate in our nine-month Leadership program. It’s a 2½-day program for executives and professionals who want to broaden their understanding of our community, connect with people of influence, and explore Palm Beach County’s strengths, challenges and initiatives.
Our Leadership Grow program, mirroring our Engage program, enables 40 to 50 high school juniors to understand the critical issues facing Palm Beach County while encouraging them to expand their leadership roles and build a foundation of involvement in their community.
Led by a team of dedicated Leadership Palm Beach County alumni, students spend nine months gaining experience by having unparalleled access to leaders from businesses, government agencies and civic organizations. This program is free to the students.
Leadership Aspire is a program offered by Leadership Palm Beach County (LPBC) based on a community needs assessment conducted in December 2015. Aspire includes quarterly four-hour workshops presented on themes such as leading with emotional intelligence, effective public speaking, conflict resolution and cultural competence.
