Leadership Brevard

The objective of Leadership Brevard is to develop a group of individuals to provide a diversity of input, thought, and perspective and ultimately develop a group of individuals positioned to utilize leadership skills for the long-term benefit of the community.

The program was founded to increase the civic participation of community leaders within Brevard County and The Space Coast.

Leadership Brevard program goals:

  • Provide you with community education.
  • Build relationships with your classmates.
  • Connect you to a network of community leaders.

Annually, a class of sixty candidates representing the private, public and non-profit sectors enrolls for eight, day-long sessions of instruction and dialogue about key county & regional issues, leadership development, and opportunities for increased civic involvement.

Program participants will also have the opportunity to work in teams to create solutions to identify community problems. Several leadership action projects are developed each year, many of which continue to impact our community in positive ways.

My time in Leadership Brevard has taught me to step out of my comfort zone and be the change I want to see in my community.  Through the informative day-long sessions, I had the opportunity to learn about areas where I can make an impact in Brevard.  Whether the cause is political, environmental or charitable in nature, I have been given the tools and the connections through Leadership Brevard to make a difference.

Leadership Brevard exceeded all my expectations!  I gained incredible insights into the many diverse organizations throughout the county.  You will not only gain an extensive network of local leaders, you will make many friends along the way.  I highly recommend Leadership Brevard to anyone interested in making a difference in our county.
