About LEAD Goleta

LEAD Goleta is a free, interactive and eye-opening six week program designed to help community members better understand the role that local government plays so that they can effectively participate, share that knowledge with others and possibly even consider a future role in city governance. 

Each class is interactive and features different key City departments giving a behind the scenes view of how the City of Goleta is run.  Attendees will learn everything from how roads are maintained to what goes in to creating the City’s budget. Throughout the program, participants will be exposed to the role of local government.
