- Leadership Hollywood
Leadership Hollywood is an interactive program where participants can view our community up close, work together and acquire a unique knowledge of resources and services available in Hollywood, Broward County and the State of Florida. Each scheduled day provides an experiential forum through interface and communication with the current leaders in our community. All activities encourage class members’ involvement and participation. As a result of their participation in the program, Leadership Hollywood graduates acquire a solid understanding of the processes, opportunities and challenges in their community. Leadership Hollywood is an organized curriculum for our community’s existing and emerging leaders.
An Introduction to City Officials and Community Leaders
By virtue of taking part in the various sessions, participants meet key members of the community, region and state. From city officials to county administrators to legislative leaders, Leadership Hollywood provides class members with an opportunity to present their concerns and voice their questions - face-to-face.
What the Future Holds
A graduate of Leadership Hollywood will gain an undisputable edge when doing business in Hollywood. Alumni of our program have pursued their service to our community by serving as judges, mayors or commissioners to name a few. Others take on leadership roles in the governance of local non-profit organizations. The Leadership Hollywood program provides participants with the knowledge they need to be enlightened, informed and connected leaders in their community.
When selecting candidates, the Leadership Hollywood Steering Committee focuses on developing a class that reflects the diverse cross-sections of the Hollywood community in terms of ethnic background, age, gender, profession and industry.
Sessions are scheduled once or twice monthly from October through May, culminating with a graduation ceremony held in June. Typical program days begin at 7:30 am and end at 5:00 pm.
