Foundations of Leadership Day @ Oak Hill Park Meeting Rooms A&B
Sep 5 @ 8:00 am – 5:00 pm

Successful communities require the stewardship of broad-minded, well-educated, forward-thinking individuals acting in unity to promote the cumulative interests of a greater goal. Because leadership starts at the individual level, the “Foundations of Leadership” day kicks off the program with understanding each participant’s strengths identified using the Clifton StrengthFinder assessment.

The day also includes an historical perspective of the San Ramon Valley and a review of the unified vision that was created by previous community leaders. Intermixed throughout the day are opportunities for developing relationships with other program participants and building the foundations for a strong sense of team and group identity.

Day Chairs:  Kathy Chiverton, (Lead), Paige Meyer, Henry Perezalonso, and Dominique Yancey

Government Day @ San Ramon City Hall, EOC Room
Dec 12 @ 8:00 am – 5:00 pm

This session presents an overview of local government and its relationship to other governmental bodies. Students receive first-hand experience in civic leadership by campaigning and running for public office in a mock city council election.  Opportunities are provided throughout the day to interact with current and former public office holders as well as public service administrators. One of the goals of the program, and this session, in particular, is to familiarize the class with methods of effecting change through the governmental process.  The class also elects its class council members, mayor and vice mayor during this class.
