LeaderSpring invites veteran and mid-career nonprofit executive directors based in San Francisco to apply to its two-year, on-the-job Fellowship. This Fellowship is ideal for those who lead agencies serving low-income communities and communities of color and who seek to achieve breakthroughs in agency performance while gaining self-renewal. Fellows participate in retreats, monthly day-long gatherings, workshops with seasoned trainers, executive coaching, and a customized study trip to a nationally respected agency.
Building on the organization’s 14-year track record, LeaderSpring is pleased to help accomplished leaders move to their next horizon of personal and professional growth. The LeaderSpring program is the only two-year place-based fellowship in the San Francisco Bay Area that also leads to a cross-sector alumni network of executive directors, now with 129 members.
Through this Fellowship, leaders will have an opportunity to achieve personal and agency transformation, including:
- Enhancing the performance of their organizations, including board governance and personnel management.
- Sharpening their leadership and management skills by focusing on practical, real-time issues.
- Gaining new perspectives on social change issues.
- Building bonds with peers, enabling cross-sector partnerships.
