Program Curriculum

Leadership Sunnyvale's program will run from October 2018 through May 2019.  The curriculum consists of monthly full-day seminars (scheduled on the second or third Friday of the month from 8:30a - 4:30p), followed by 2-4 hour leadership skills workshops (the next morning 8:30a - 12:30p).

In addition to the curriculum, participants will develop and deliver class projects, typically in groups of 4 to 6.  These projects are intended to require 2-4 hours per month of effort per participant.


We continually evaluate the curriculum and schedule to ensure that we provide current content and a reasonable schedule to attendees. Take a look at our 2018-19 schedule below.
