Every year the Greater Pueblo Chamber coordinates the Leadership Pueblo program. The program is designed for individuals interested in developing their leadership skills. The curriculum affords each class the opportunity to network with up-and-coming leaders and current decision makers in the community in order to grasp a better understanding of the issues facing the Pueblo community, as well as a chance to discuss solutions to these problems. As a requirement for graduation, all leadership classes are required to plan and implement a class project designed to benefit the community.
The 2018 program begins in January with an overnight retreat and is followed with seven additional sessions scheduled once every three weeks. Sessions include Pueblo’s past, present and future, state and local government, education, health and human services, Pueblo’s resources, the arts and media.
Tuition for the program is $650. Scholarships are available through the El Pomar Foundation for minority applicants, and two scholarships are also available through the Southern Colorado Community Foundation. All scholarships require a three-year commitment to community volunteerism.
