The 33 class members will mark the largest class of the program in the past five years. Local government officials, community and business leaders and the vast network of Leadership Long Beach (LLB) alumni will be on hand to meet, greet and celebrate the continuation of the future and the legacy of this principled leadership program that continues to contribute to the betterment of Long Beach.
The Class of 2014 will be the 25th Institute class of Leadership Long Beach and will add principled leaders to the community through the interactive, experiental training and education provided in the year-long program. Leadership Long Beach is a civic engagement program designed to develop demonstrated community leaders by increasing their knowledge of the Long Beach community and creating networks of individuals who can help each other solve community challenges.
“We are very excited to present our 25th ‘Silver’ Institute Class to the community,” remarks LLB Board President Rolando Cruz. “This group represents one of our largest classes which demonstrates the awareness of our programs in fostering principled leaders and the desire of individuals to contribute in meaningfully ways to the community.”
Throughout the 10-month program, class members, representing diverse segments of the community, attend monthly day-long classes learning about various aspects of the Long Beach community and focusing on leadership principles and values. Each class concludes their year by completing service projects which demonstrate their understanding of community issues which will benefit the Long Beach community. Since its inception, LLB classes have completed over 110 community service projects, many of them continuing and enhancing community development since their class activity. Additionally in 2011, LLB acknowledged the graduation of its 1000th participant from their three principled leadership programs.
