We Connect Houston's Leaders
with Each Other and the City they Care About.
Our mission is to enlighten, empower, and engage Houston's leaders and to help them connect with each other and their city. To achieve these goals, we offer a signature class designed to be both challenging and transformative and alumni programs designed to maintain engagement.
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 1,800+ 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.
