LEAD Goleta (Learn Empower Advocate Discuss)

Be part of the City’s first LEAD Goleta community academy! The program is free and designed to help residents better understand the role that local government plays in the community so that they can effectively participate and share that knowledge with others. LEAD Goleta stands for Learn, Empower, Advocate, Discuss. Attendees will be exposed to the role of local government and will hopefully consider a future role in city governance either as an elected Councilmember, Board member or Commissioner.

WHO: The first 20 Goleta residents who submit a completed application will be accepted into the program. The City believes that it is important to get young adults involved in the local government process as well. That is why we have reserved five additional spots for youth ages 15-21, and encourage people within that age group to apply.

WHEN: Second Wednesday of each month 6:00 - 8:00 p.m., starting on February 13, 2019

Participants must attend all six classes.
