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.
Class applications are available online and are subject to approval by the LE Board of Directors. Class size is kept to approximately 15 people to ensure cohesiveness and participation of the group members. Applications can be submitted throughout the year, with new class modules beginning in January of odd numbered years. The application deadline for the 2015 class is October 8, 2015.

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
