Leadership Greater Rochester Program
Our mission is to build a broad-based network of community leaders to enhance their leadership abilities and skills through continuing education, shared perspectives, and community involvement in order to enable them to work toward solutions in the public interest.
This nine-month program is your gateway to involvement and connections in the greater Rochester communities. Dedicated to the development of community-minded leaders, the program’s goal is to help develop the skills of emerging leaders from across the community. The program provides participants with an opportunity to meet local elected officials and community leaders to gain insight into the region’s unique history, activities and economy.
Participants meet one day each month and are immersed in a different component of the community such as health care, local government, history, law enforcement, education, economic growth and human services. Meetings are held at various locations providing an insiders‘ perspective and private tour.

"Leadership Greater Rochester was one of my favorite days of the month that I always looked forward to. I loved getting to spend time with leaders and other members of the community. Learning more about local government, non-profits, and emergency services. There is so much that goes into running a community that you do not think about from the day-to-day. My graduating class as well as the leaders I have met along the way are now friendly faces I see at events and relationships I will always have! This program pushed my professional growth and I made some great connections along the way."
