Graduating INTO Leadership

About Leadership Frisco

The purpose is to develop a pool of qualified, highly motivated individuals who are interested in expanding their leadership skills, deepening their sense of civic responsibility, and becoming more involved in the community as a whole.

Leadership Frisco™  is a nine-month community leadership program sponsored by the Frisco Chamber of Commerce. Each class starts with a team-building day and includes a full day each month dedicated to exploring the inner workings of Frisco’s government, educational system, economic development, service organizations, regional issues, leisure and culture, health services, and public safety. Members will also have the opportunity to learn about and practice skills critical to working with volunteers and groups in the community. Members of the program will also select and complete a class project during their year that benefits Frisco.

How to Apply

Leadership Frisco application for the 2024/2025 program year (Class XVIII) is now open! Applications are due no later than 5:00 PM on Thursday, June 20, 2024. Late applications will not be accepted. Before applying, please read the application instructions throughly. We recommend writing the essay questions listed in the instructions in your favorite word processing software and copying and pasting into the application. Please plan for the application to take 1 to 2 hours to complete.

Reasons to Participate

Class members work in groups to complete a community service project. This requires everyone to practice project management skills, learn traits of effective teamwork, assess their individual strengths and weaknesses and use organizational and problem-solving skills.

Class members interact with one another and with instructors, facilitators, and speakers, increasing their network and making valuable connections with people from a variety of backgrounds and industries within our community.

Class members are exposed to a wide variety of perspectives about the community. Each class session focuses on a different topic, ranging from business ethics and nonprofits to diversity and education. This helps them understand our community better and the resources available, which contributes to job performance.
