Information share: JFGS- Advanced Leadership Development Program

This fall, the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle is launching an exciting new Advanced Leadership Development Program. This program will train a select group of emerging young Jewish leaders in the Seattle Jewish community with the skills and knowledge necessary to undertake serious leadership roles within Federation and the larger Jewish community.

Participants in this Advanced Leadership Development program will have the opportunity to meet and network with fellow emerging leaders, learn from some of the most prominent leaders, philanthropists, and educators in our Jewish community, and at the conclusion of the program become a committee or board member for the Federation or one of the many Jewish organizations in Seattle. The goal of this program is to give you tangible and transferable knowledge that will allow you to be a successful leader in the Jewish community as well as in your professional and personal lives.

Sessions will take place on the second Wednesday of each month, beginning on October 10, 2012 and ending on June 12, 2013. Session will be held between 6:30 pm and 8 pm with a light dinner served. Participants will be asked to not miss more than 2 sessions to ensure that they are properly prepared to serve in a leadership position at the Federation and elsewhere.
