Leadership Santa Fe’s array of programs are designed to enhance leadership resources for the community of Santa Fe. We accomplish this by giving civic-minded people a vehicle for their community-oriented energies, and providing access to community leaders and policy makers by offering two programs: The Adult Program and the Youth Leadership Santa Fe Program.

In the Adult Program, thirty Leadership Santa Fe participants will, over the course of eight months, attend workshops focused on building leadership skills, and sessions dedicated to various civic awareness topics. Participants meet with established leaders in county and city governments, business, education, human services and the arts, and explore ways to meet the challenges of Santa Fe’s future.

The Youth Program (started fall of 2014) will provide thirty 9th/10th and 11th graders the opportunity to enroll in the Santa Fe Community College and earn up to three college credits and one dual high-school credit (school dependent) for nine Saturdays that will focus on civic and community issues, a ropes challenge course, and leadership development.

This integrated form of leadership building ensures that each individual identifies their strengths as a leader in the community, learns how to work with others to find sustainable solutions, and cultivates a network of community leaders. For more information, click here.
