Leadership Mendocino is a program that seeks to strengthen the foundation of our communities by educating a diverse group of people who will get involved and make a difference.
By giving to the Leadership Mendocino program, you support our local communities in myriad ways. Of our 400 graduates, almost all those who remain in Mendocino County are giving back as elected leaders on city councils, the Board of Supervisors, commissions and boards, on community volunteer boards, commissions and clubs. Their efforts in service to a wide variety of organizations help make our communities better places to live.
Our non-profit program is supported by participants through tuition, local businesses, alumni and others who want to invest in making their community a better place to live. This support has helped our program fulfill its mission since its inception in 1993.
