- WHAT WE DO -
The Leadership Academy provides Huntington Beach professionals with a unique opportunity to connect with their community and to better understand the components of its government, public safety, business community, economic climate, social uniqueness, education and health care system.
Graduates have found the program to be invaluable to enhancing their careers and formulate lasting relationships with fellow classmates.
- WHY JOIN -
Applicants chosen for the 2018-2019 program will have the unique opportunity to develop their potential for public responsibility. Each of the nine workshops are designed to inform, motivate and challenge the participant and give you a glimpse behind the scenes of your community. As the workshop locations change to enhance and compliment the following dynamic topics, so do the presenters, who represent the community.
Some of the topics include:
? Team Building & Leadership/Orientation
? City/County Government & Infrastructure
? Health Care
? Community/Social Services & Culture
? Business & Economy
? Communication/Media Relations
? Volunteering & Community Involvement
The Leadership Academy does not advocate programs or particular solutions. It seeks, instead, to present the views of a wide spectrum of experts in the selected areas of discussion.
- PROGRAM GOALS -
1. Identify and motivate potential community leaders to become involved in their community.

- TESTIMONIALS -
?As a business owner, I increased my networking opportunities and even received direct business as a result of the relationships I built. As a resident, I achieved a better understanding on how we run our city and shadowing local leaders was a unique opportunity. As a parent, I gained better awareness of our school system by meeting education leaders and after touring both our fire and police departments I trust our city is safe.?
Christina M. Haakenson, Founder
Class of 2009
