Even those with a big heart and tons of potential still need a hand at saving the world. In response to nonprofit leaders expressing that we need to do a better job of investing in the next generation of nonprofit leaders, the Emerging Leaders Program was created.
The goal of the program is to educate, support and connect the next generation of professional leaders in Santa Barbara County.
The 10-month, one day a month program is tailor made to the needs of these emerging leaders, and thanks to the vision and generosity of the Santa Barbara Foundation, the program will be a terrific value for any agency that has a leader participating. The Santa Barbara Foundation is covering 80 percent of the program costs.
“We are excited to invest in this personal development opportunity because we believe that vibrant communities are dependent on an ever-expanded base of strong, supported, and nurtured leadership,” said Martha Harmon, senior vice president of community investments.
