The Leadership Galveston program was revived during 1995 as a project of Galveston College's Leadership Institute in partnership with the Galveston Chamber of Commerce. The Leadership Galveston now boasts over 300 former graduates of diverse backgrounds and experiences. These graduates studied the social and economic aspects of Galveston in previous leadership classes between 1984-1990 and 1995 - 2005.
The purpose of Leadership Galveston is to provide an educational program on the needs, challenges, and service learning opportunities in the City of Galveston. The instructor’s goal is to motivate the participants to become involved in Galveston's future.
Its objectives are to: (1) acquaint participants with Galveston's history, government, economy and resources (2) address the problems and challenges facing the city; (3) offer participants the opportunity to meet and develop working relationships with current leaders and decision makers; (4) encourage program participants to actively become involved in community leadership roles.
Acceptance in the program is based upon potential leadership skills, involvement in community affairs and concern for the future of Galveston. As civic, business and government leaders tackle current issues, a new generation of leadership is being trained to overcome the obstacles that now face Galveston and those that will arise in the coming years. Leadership Galveston is providing participants with the necessary skills to meet these challenges.
Dates: Fridays from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. – September 26th, October 10th, October 24th, November 7th, November 21st and December 5th. The cost is $350 per registrant. For more information call Joe Huff, Director of Public Affairs and Galveston College Foundation at (409) 944-1302.
