The Boulder Chamber and The Community Foundation partner to bring the Boulder County Leadership Fellows (BCLF) program. BCLF creates a pipeline for business, nonprofit, and government leadership roles as they meet leaders across all sectors over a 10 month period.
BCLF combines the strengths of the two organizations’ previous endeavors in this area: Leadership Boulder County ran for 25 years; Leadership Fellows completed four years before the two merged. The program’s curriculum focuses on building networks and providing opportunities to participate local leadership roles. BCLF provides participants with a deep appreciation for the social, environmental, and economic interests our leaders as they balance their decisions making.
The program focuses on transformational and inclusive leadership as the Fellows become familiar with Boulder County’s infrastructure and gain a broad understanding of its economic, civic, and cultural drivers.
