As with all worthwhile endeavors, you will get out of the Emerging Leaders program what you put into it.
Participants are expected to attend all sessions and complete all assigned work.

You are responsible for coming to class prepared, fully engaging the curriculum, and cultivating relationships inside and outside the cohort.  You were selected because of your leadership potential and the perspective and experience you bring to the class. Please complete this form by Friday, September 22. Other excellent applicants have been waitlisted, and another candidate would be pleased to take your spot should you feel you cannot make the full commitment. 

In terms of the commitment expected of you:

  • Please review the program dates below and make sure you are available.  If there is a conflict, please let us know ASAP.
  • There will be approximately three hours of coursework between monthly sessions, which might include meetings with people inside or outside your organization, reading articles, or exploring your organization in greater depth within the context of the program.  You are expected to come to class fully prepared.

Participant Program Fee: Thanks to our generous donors, the fee charged to each participating organization is less than half of the cost of putting on the program (almost $6,000 per participant). In support of investing in team leadership development, your organization is responsible for a payment depending on its budget size:

  • Program Fee is $1,750 for Organizations with budgets under $500,000
  • Program Fee is $2,250 for Organizations with budgets between $500,000 – $1 million
  • Program Fee is $2,750 for Organizations with budgets over $1 million

Cost is not a barrier to being admitted! Additional subsidy is available to anyone based on the capacity of the sponsoring organization and what either the participant or Leading From Within is able to further contribute. Please reach out to our Programs Staff with any questions or concerns regarding program fees.
