Leadership Evergreen (LE) is a non-profit organization that connects people within the Evergreen, Colorado area and surrounding mountain communities in a dynamic way. Since the first graduating class of 1996, there have been over 100 graduates of the program and that number continues to grow.
The purpose of LE’s year-long module structured program is to broaden community awareness, strengthen leadership and team-building skills, and to engage our graduates as proactive community participants.
From executives to homemakers to area newcomers, LE’s program is encouraged for anyone who wants to learn more about the unincorporated dynamics of the mountain community … how we are governed, how decisions are made and how to make a difference, have a voice and become involved.
Classes are held every two years on odd numbered years. Class members have the opportunity to connect and partner with people, develop new professional and community relationships, and unite together to create a Project that benefits the community in some positive way. Past class projects can be found under the ‘LE Gives Back’ tab.
Classes are limited to 15 people to ensure cohesiveness and participation. The class of 2015 began in January and graduated in November. Application information for our next class in 2017 will be posted here the second half of 2016.
Please explore this website to learn how you can participate in an upcoming class, become involved with the organization’s class sessions, or join the many local businesses and organizations who support the area’s emerging community leaders.
“Being a born and raised Evergreen, Colorado native, I love my hometown
and all the groups that I’m involved in, especially Leadership Evergreen.
It is the greatest way to give back to my community.” – John Ellis
