Leadership Anchorage consists of an initial two-day retreat in September and eight full-day sessions held monthly on Saturdays through May. Sessions are held at different locations throughout the Anchorage area to introduce participants to a range of neighborhoods and community venues.
In addition to the sessions, participants spend approximately 80 hours outside of class on their group projects, meetings with mentors, and preparations/readings for the class.
What is the cost?
Tuition is $2,000. A monthly payment plan is available and many participants obtain financial support from their employer, personal sponsors, Native Corporations, and other groups. We also offer need-based scholarships - indicate on your application if you are interested in more information.
Core Components of the Program
Our approach uses readings, in-depth discussion, and reflection to guide participants in their learning. We use the history and stories of our community as valuable resources in understanding Anchorage's unique opportunities and challenges and in considering how we can shape our future.
LA intentionally engages participants from a cross-section of sector, background and experience, age, and interests to deepen understanding, challenge assumptions, and encourage new connections that might not otherwise develop.
Working in small teams, participants partner with local organizations to work on community impact projects that tackle real, immediate needs within the Anchorage community.
Participants select a mentor within an area of interest or industry to guide them in meeting their goals for leadership development and community contribution throughout the program.
