Participant Application

Thank you for considering Leadership Modesto, now in its 37th year! The purpose of Leadership Modesto is to identify current and potential Modesto leaders and to provide a ten-month program that will develop knowledge and understanding of the community, its complexities and its potential. The program will also provide an opportunity for participants to meet and exchange ideas with each other and current community leaders, and to motivate and encourage participants to assume leadership roles in community affairs.

The program begins each year with a weekend retreat focusing on leadership, self-reflection and team building. Each of the events during the year offers a behind-the-scenes look at our city covering topics such as: local and state government, community services, education, healthcare, media, arts and culture, infrastructure and development, public safety, business, commerce and agriculture. 

Applications are confidential and used solely for selection purposes only.
