We connect community leaders to the city they care about.
The mission of Leadership Houston is to enlighten, empower, and engage leaders in the Houston community. We offer a signature class and alumni programs.
A hands-on learning experience
Leadership Houston is a ten-month journey through Houston's economy, history, and growth plans. Through two overnights and a monthly class day, the program provides exposure to Houston's key industries, including energy, healthcare, education, and government.
A close-knit alumni network
Each Leadership Houston class forms a special bond through a shared experience. Many like to stay involved through board service and class day planning. Alumni include 1,650+ leaders in business and government.
Work together to make an impact
Each year, the class project is an opportunity to address a need in the community, and to rally a diverse group to make an impact. Previous class projects included a library renovation at SHAPE Community Center, and a collaboration with the Adopt-A-Stop program to build four METRO stop shelters featuring artwork from local artists.
