Miami Leaders Program
Eight emerging community leaders are recipients of The Miami Foundation’s Miami Leaders program for 2012.
The program is designed to grow the leadership skills and administrative competencies of Miami-Dade County’s nonprofit leaders. Miami Leaders grants, totaling $27,350 this year, are awarded to emerging, nonprofit leaders serving Miami-Dade County.
Winners will attend premier executive education programs around the country through grants from The Miami Foundation as Miami Leaders. Miami Leaders will bring their new learning and experiences back to Miami-Dade County, where they will continue to serve as vital resources to their organizations in the Foundation’s key mission to build a Greater Miami.
"We’ve been in the community 45 years, and believe that investing in Miami-Dade’s future leaders is central to the advancement of our mission,” said Javier Alberto Soto, president and CEO of The Miami Foundation.
“The Miami Leaders program is designed to be of deep benefit to our community through the enhancement of the recipients’ skills and talents,” said Nancy Jones, the Foundation’s vice president for public affairs and communications. “Each recipient attends a targeted leadership program, and each program is among the best in the country.”
Applications for 2013 will be available in July 2013. Please join our mailing list to stay informed about updates.
