Description

Leadership Memphis has been the preeminent community leadership organization in the city for 38 years. Founded in 1979, the organization has graduated more than 3,000 community leaders and continues to be a ground-breaking innovator with new programs and action initiatives that advance diversity and inclusivity, increase individual and collective impact, and promote civic engagement that makes a difference. The organization has four programs -- Executive, Criminal/Juvenile Justice, FastTrack, and Grassroots -- that develop community leaders at every level from seasoned professionals and emerging talent to front-line leaders. Our action initiatives are Graduate Memphis and Volunteer Memphis. Graduate Memphis is focused on increasing the post-secondary attainment rate of our community. Volunteer Memphis is dedicated to increasing volunteerism in our community. Leadership Memphis hosts three large signature events annually designed to create stronger connections between our alumni, sponsors, community partners and other business and community leaders in support of our vision, mission and goals. Our signature events are The Community Leadership Luncheon, Multicultural Breakfast and Alumni Holiday Party.

Programs

Criminal Juvenile Justice Program

Target Audience: Executive
Average Size: 20 - 30
Tuition: $3500 - $5000

The LM/ALF Criminal/Juvenile Justice Program is designed to join and strengthen leaders involved in all aspects of criminal justice in the Greater Memphis community. Criminal justice has gotten a lot of attention recently, and each day we read about challenges that perhaps could be approached more effectively if leaders in the various segments of the criminal justice community really knew and trusted each other. This program was first offered in 2009 in Houston, Texas and is modeled after successful single sector programs offered since 2006 both in healthcare and public education.

Executive Program

Target Audience: Executive
Average Size: More than 50
Tuition: $3500 - $5000

Our original (and ever-evolving) Leadership Memphis executive program brings together the brightest local exes so they can learn more about themselves, each other and the greater community. This creates a powerful forum for networking, learning, and doing in ways that maximize community impact.The Executive Program does not teach participants to be leaders - it helps leaders learn about our community. While always insightful for newcomers to the Memphis area, even natives and long-term Memphians are amazed at what they learn and re-learn about our community. Together we identify how community leaders can play a role in creating the change necessary to make Memphis a City of Choice. The program includes candid, sometimes tough, and always enlightening conversations with local movers and shakers, and interactive class activities. There is also a service learning project helping local high school students increase post-secondary attainment and career awareness.

FastTrack Program

Target Audience: Young Professional
Average Size: 30 - 40
Tuition: $1000 - $1500

The FastTrack Program is for emerging leaders who are determined to learn and take action to build a better Memphis. FastTrack participants are passionate about the Memphis region and are energized by their classmates, who represent a diversity of personal and professional backgrounds. Each class is a strong cross-section of people from business, nonprofit, govern­ment, academic, and other backgrounds.

Grassroots Program

Target Audience: Other
Average Size: 20 - 30
Tuition: Less than $500

This sequence is designed to bolster the effectiveness of existing grassroots leaders by focusing on ten basic leadership skills, exploring leadership processes and techniques, and demonstrating the \\\"how to\\\" capacities of frontline leaders. The quality and depth of the curriculum are designed for both short and long term benefits for individual neighborhoods and the larger Memphis community. The Grassroots program targets leaders who are already on the frontlines of community change. Each class represents a strong cross-section of society, including representatives from neighborhood groups, international communities, multicultural associations, law enforcement, faith communities, PTAs, PTOs and other organizations.
