Leadership Atlanta

Highlight this week –  LEADERSHIP ATLANTA

Leadership Atlanta is te original Leadership program. Their mission is to build a better community for everyone in the Atlanta region by imparting to their members what makes Atlanta unique and by inspiring them to take on and exercise real leadership committed to serving the common good. Formed in 1970, Leadership Atlanta (Atlanta Leadership Development Foundation, Inc.) is the oldest continuously running training program of its type in the country. It was formed by a group of concerned citizens  to address the growing need for a trained cadre of committed young leaders.

Tuition is currently $2,500. Since 1969, over 2200 men and women, selected from metro Atlanta counties and representing the diversity of their community, have completed this program and have taken their place as leaders in the community. There are now over 1000 leadership development programs in the United States, many of which were modeled after Leadership Atlanta.

“The Leadership Atlanta experience taught me how to more effectively integrate my own community into the greater Metro Atlanta community. But Leadership Atlanta continues beyond graduation. My biggest reward is to remain part of a continuing educational process and a network of leaders committed to making a positive impact in Atlanta.”
