The Leadership Charlotte program is for emerging and existing leaders.  It is our flagship program and is considered a “backstage pass” to the Charlotte community.  It is a two-part program, starting with ten, once-a-month program days where approximately 50 participants explore current issues with a variety of community leaders. Tuition for at-large applicants is $4,000, reflecting a 50% discount of the actual program cost. Scholarship and payment plan options are available for selected program participants. The program is complete after participants serve on a committee that coordinates one of these program days for the incoming class.

Program days focus on:

  • Charlotte: Past, Present & Future
  • Education
  • Government & Politics
  • Healthcare
  • Equity & Inclusion
  • Justice
  • Arts & Culture
  • Sustainable Charlotte
  • Community Trusteeship
