Leadership Delray: where passion meets purpose
If you have a passion for the Delray community and a desire to serve it in a leadership role, plan to participate in the Leadership Delray program.
Community from the inside out
An independently run program, Leadership Delray is all about first-hand experiences and behind-the-scenes access. You’ll get an intimate look at how all facets of our community work and the challenges they face—education, health care, emergency services, local government, the arts and more – while exploring aspects of leadership.
A 9-month program that fast-tracks leadership
A team-building session that is followed by our Contacts and Cocktails event (where you’ll meet local leaders and program alumni) kicks off the program. Then, once a month for nine months, you and your classmates spend the day immersed in one of the facets of our community.
“Leadership Delray is the fastest and best way to learn about the Delray community and create business partners. I developed such great relationships and friendships through this program. I encourage everyone to take advantage of the opportunity.”
