What is Leadership Golden?
The Leadership Golden program is a series of seminars spanning a nine month period.

Participants have the opportunity to explore options and methods of problem solving with city staff and community leaders in the fields of education, arts, recreation, public finance, city and county government, justice, community responsibility and economic development.The Leadership Golden program is designed to enhance the abilities of the participants to make a difference. The program educates emerging leaders and volunteers to the realities, opportunities and challenges in Golden, Colorado.

Leadership Golden Holiday Ornaments
Every holiday season Leadership Golden offers for sale a beautiful holiday ornament portraying one of the many treasured aspects of living in Golden. Proceeds from the sale of the ornaments go directly to operating expenses for the Leadership Golden. These sales are important because Leadership Golden offers free tuition - one of the very few leadership programs in the U.S. that IS offered for free — and there are very few options for the Leadership Golden team to raise the necessary funds to cover expenses. Fortunately, sales are never a problem. These beautiful, limited-edition ornaments are prized as collectibles, and they sell out fast! The 2018 - 2019 Leadership Golden holiday ornament seen here depicts a paddler in a kayak on Golden's beautiful Clear Creek, with South Table Mountain in the background. This latest addition to the 37-ornament series was designed by local artist Jesse Crock. Most everyone who lives in Golden already knows Jesse's work (jessecrockart.com) and for visitors, it's a memorable souvenir of their time in our fair city. A work of art for $12!
