Community Acceleration Projects

LEAD Brevard’s flagship program, Leadership Brevard is in its 38th year of achieving excellence in leadership in Brevard County by “working together to strengthen our community by inspiring people to lead”.

In addition to our programming, all Leadership Brevard class members are required to participate in a community project. These projects are designed to be a leadership learning experience for the participants and a meaningful benefit to the community organization. During its history, Leadership Brevard, the flagship community leadership program of LEAD Brevard, has organized, guided, and overseen the successful completion of over 192 Community Acceleration Projects (formerly known as: Leadership Action Projects). In recent years, the Leadership Brevard class has contributed over 2,600 annual volunteer service hours to the community with an in-kind impact of over $66,118* to Brevard. Over 38 years, economic impact totals are over $2M!!

LEAD Brevard is accepting project proposals from Brevard County’s nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations and Brevard County’s municipalities for consideration as a Community Acceleration Project for the Leadership Brevard Class of 2024.

Project proposals should be designed with the understanding that the Leadership Brevard class is comprised of talented and professionally accomplished individuals.  We seek projects with clearly defined end goals that utilize the skills of 7 – 10 team members, with different skills and experience and that will benefit an established 501(c)(3) nonprofit agency or public sector organization.   Project duration: FALL COHORT: AUGUST 2023 – APRIL 2024 or SPRING COHORT: JANUARY 2023 – SEPTEMBER 2024
