Leadership Rochester is a nonprofit organization that provides established and emerging leaders with knowledge and access to resources, enabling them to understand and respond to the quality of life challenges facing the Greater Rochester region.
Leadership Rochester has been "creating a Legacy of Leaders" since 1992 and has an alumni network of over 500. Approximately 35-40 people are chosen per year from a selective application and interview process to participate in this nine-month leadership program. Applications are accepted through May for the program that begins in September. Group participants immerse themselves in a topical community issue for one Friday per month. Hands-on activities change monthly, as does the roster of relevant community leaders that offer their insights on a 360-degree view of the topic at hand. Here is a sample listing of program days and their objectives:
Opening Retreat - create a climate conducive to establishing a bond of trust, camaraderie and unity among class members. To explore individual roles as leaders in our community.
Get Grounded - provide a ‘hands on’ community issues overview and to begin to develop and experience team leadership in small groups.
Who Takes Care of Whom - experience human services issues and how the system works from a client’s perspective.
Education - identify and explore the diverse challenges and opportunities that face our educational system today.
Building Common Ground - examine personal beliefs and attitudes and their effect on our behavior.
Justice for All/Public Safety - experience the realities of the criminal justice system through a variety of perspectives.
Health Care - understand the basic health care system in its present state of change and how those changes will affect us.
Economic Development - create awareness, and gain exposure and understanding of the economic climate in Rochester.
Closing Retreat - begin/expand the process of finding your place in creating Rochester’s future and the many forms of leadership.
