There are many ways to get involved in Leadership Palm Beach County!
Most people engage in one of our core leadership programs: the Adult Leadership Program, Youth Leadership Program, or FOCUS.
After graduating from our Adult Leadership Program, a person becomes eligible for the Leadership Alumni Association.
Many community organizations partner with us through our civic engagement program.
Companies also choose to partner with Leadership Palm Beach County through website advertisements to highlight their products and services among Palm Beach County’s finest leaders. In addition, companies looking to align themselves with our mission to Educate & Unite Leaders to Build a Better Community, engage with us as an official “Community Partner” to gain year-round exposure to the organization’s alumni.
We hope you enjoy exploring our website and learning about the Leadership Palm Beach County Core Programs: Adult Leadership Program, Youth Leadership Program, or FOCUS, as well as our many Alumni Committees and LPBC Events. You can also read our current Alumni News and learn more about our graduates in the Alumni Spotlight section. Don’t forget to check out the Civic Engagement Projects each Adult Leadership Class works on so enthusiastically each year! If you have further questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
Each year, LPBC works with schools throughout Palm Beach County to create a Youth Leadership class of approximately 45 high school juniors from diverse backgrounds. Students do not go through a traditional application process. Instead, we rely on school administrators, teachers, and guidance counselors to recommend students whom they feel will benefit from the curriculum as well as contribute meaningfully to the group. Any interested candidate for our Youth Leadership Program should speak to their principal and guidance counselor during the spring of his or her sophomore year.
FOCUS is not a required prerequisite for our Adult Leadership class. However, FOCUS is a great introduction to LPBC and many graduates of FOCUS go on to apply to and graduate from the year-long course. For those professionals who cannot commit a great deal of time or who are new to Palm Beach County, FOCUS is often the best option.
LPBC is a private nonprofit 501c3 educational organization and is registered with the Florida Division of Consumer Services to solicit funds to benefit its programs and community projects (Registration #CH-14757). Our funding sources include membership dues and program tuition, fundraising events, community sponsorships, and individual donations.
