Leadership Orange is a completely private, non-partisan organization that relies on support from the business community to reach its goals. Over 330 men and women have graduated from the Leadership Orange program since its inception in 1993. Each year, a group of Orange County individuals with a variety of backgrounds are selected to take part in a 10-month leadership training program. Class participants receive training on topics important to Orange County residents and businesses including education, health and human services, communications, government and politics, the environment, culture and recreation, economic development, leadership development and the judicial system.
The training enables community members to better understand the many challenges facing Orange County and, therefore, to better serve our community.
