Leadership Venice is designed to expose current and future leaders to all aspects of the Venice community.

The program’s purpose is:

  • To gather community leaders of diverse backgrounds
  • To develop their knowledge and desire to accept civic responsibilities and leadership roles
  • To expose participants to the problems and opportunities that face the Venice community.
  • To open dialogue among emerging and current community leaders

The program runs from February until October meeting all day once a month. As part of the program the class selects and implements a class project.

Individuals selected will:

  • Have demonstrated commitment through past and current community activities or exhibit a desire to commit to community involvement.
  • Represent a cross section of the community of all ages and geographic representation. Diversity is an important component of the program’s purpose.
