What is Leadership Golden?

The Leadership Golden program is a series of seminars spanning a nine month period. These seminars facilitate opportunities for participants to increase their knowledge of the relationships between government, education, business, and the community of Golden. 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.

Being new to the community, the Leadership Golden experience opened my eyes to the city’s components, its function and operation. In LG you meet the various organizations and leaders who help make our city thrive. You know where to go and who to talk to when issues arise. But the best part is you come to know and respect so many community members!
