Leadership Tallahassee (LT) is a year-long program for adults that educates and encourages participants to actively seek positive and constructive changes in their community through leadership roles. Through monthly sessions that focus on topics such as justice, business, economic development, and the arts, participants build a network of community trustees who enhance their problem solving skills and leadership abilities through shared perspectives and working together. The selection process is competitive and qualified applicants must have demonstrated leadership capabilities in the public or private sector or show a motivation to contribute to the Tallahassee community. LT graduates are some of our community’s most respected and influential leaders and include elected officials, judges, CEOs of major companies, and ED’s of key non-profits.
